There was some movement in the ACC baseball standings after this past weekend’s games. North Carolina is still Baseball America’s top ranked team. Virginia moved up to number five (up from seventh), with NC State making the biggest jump to number six (up from 15). Florida State dropped to tenth (from number six) and Georgia Tech made the biggest drop to number 20 (down from 14). Clemson stayed ranked at number 25 (down from 20).
Miami’s Andrew Suarez was named the ACC Pitcher of the Week after throwing a complete game shutout in Sunday’s win over Clemson. He allowed six hits and struck out five (while not walking a batter).
There was some shuffling at the top of the Atlantic Division.
NC State moved into first place at 14-7 (32-10 overall) by sweeping GT for the first time since 1992 and the first time ever in Atlanta. The Wolfpack host Davidson tonight before hosting number one UNC this weekend.
Florida State was swept at UVA and fell to 13-8 (31-9 overall), which is good for a second place tie. The Seminoles scored a total of four runs in the three weekend games. They travel to Jacksonville tonight before hosting Wake Forest over the weekend.
Clemson lost two of three at Miami and are tied with FSU for second place in the Atlantic Division (27-13 overall). They only scored two runs in the entire three game series. The Tigers host Western Carolina on Wednesday before hosting GT over the weekend.
Wake Forest swept winless Boston College (at least in the conference), with Sunday’s game going 11 innings. They are 7-14 and 23-20 overall. The Demon Deacons travel to Winthrop tonight before traveling to FSU for a weekend series.
Maryland lost two of three at home to Virginia Tech to drop to 6-15 and 21-20 overall. The Terps host Liberty and travel to Towson in the midweek before traveling to Duke over the weekend.
Boston College was swept on the road at Wake Forest to drop to 0-20 in the ACC (6-33 overall). The Eagles will try to win their first conference game when they host Miami over the weekend.
