Gamecocks are No. 1 - and No. 2

May 2, 2011 

Despite a 4-0 week, the South Carolina baseball team stayed at No. 2 in the Baseball America Top 25 poll released Monday.

The Gamecocks (35-8) defeated Liberty in a midweek game and swept Auburn over the weekend while playing without All-American center fielder Jackie Bradley, who had surgery to repair an injured tendon in his left wrist.

Virginia (42-5), despite losing one game to Boston College, remained atop the Baseball America poll. Rounding out the Top 5 are Oregon State (32-9), Vanderbilt (38-5) and Florida (34-10). USC remains tied with Florida and Vanderbilt for the SEC lead with a 17-4 record.

The Gamecocks moved up to No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball poll and remained No. 1 ranking in the Perfect Game Top 25.
