College Baseball Rankings: UCLA Out Of Top 25 After Dropping Two Of Three To Oregon St.

Losing two of three games to the No. 3 Oregon State Beavers over the weekend cost the UCLA Bruins a spot in the top 25 in this week's college baseball rankings by Baseball America. The Bruins were no-hit on Saturday by Josh Osich of Oregon St., and went 2-2 on the week. UCLA was ranked No. 24 last week. Here is the full top 10:

  1. Virginia
  2. South Carolina
  3. Oregon St.
  4. Vanderbilt
  5. Florida
  6. Texas
  7. Arizona St.
  8. Florida St.
  9. Texas A&M
  10. Cal State Fullerton

The Pac-10 has two teams in the top seven, with Arizona St. joining Oregon St. Cal, at No. 21, is the third Pac-10 team in the top 25. Last week, the Pac-10 had five teams in the top 25, tying them with the ACC for the most of any conference, but UCLA and No. 21 Stanford dropped out. The ACC has six top 25 teams this week.

College Baseball: One Day After No-Hitter, UCLA Beats Oregon State To Salvage One Weekend Game

Adam Plutko allowed just two runs over 6 1/3 innings, leading the UCLA Bruins to a 5-2 win over the No. 3 Oregon State Beavers on Sunday at Jackie Robinson Field. The win salvaged a game for the Bruins, who lost the first two home games of their series on Friday and Saturday. UCLA, which was ranked No. 24 in last week's Baseball America rankings, is tied for third place in the Pac-10 at 11-7.

Pac-10 Baseball Standings
Team Conf Overall
Oregon St 12-3 32-9
Arizona St 13-5 31-10
UCLA 11-7 23-16
California 11-7 26-14
Arizona 9-9 27-16
USC 8-10 18-25
Stanford 6-9 21-16
Oregon 5-10 22-20
Washington St 5-13 19-20
Washington 4-11 13-27

The Bruins (23-16) split four games this week, defeating UC Irvine on Tuesday before their weekend series with the Beavers. UCLA lost the first two games to Oregon St., including a no-hitter by Josh Osich on Saturday to defeat Trevor Bauer and the Bruins 2-0. Osich had 13 strikeouts and one walk in the pitcher's duel, while expected top five (at least) draft pick Bauer also pitched a complete game, striking out 15.

"Bauer struck out 15 to give him at least 10 strike outs in 10 of his 11 starts this season and he went all nine innings for his fourth consecutive complete game," wrote Ryan Rosenblatt at Bruins Nation. "The junior allowed just two runs on the afternoon on four hits, but Osich was better and Bauer's streak of seven consecutive wins came to an end."

UCLA travels to Malibu on Tuesday to battle Pepperdine, and heads to Eugene next weekend to battle the Oregon Ducks.

UCLA was one of five Pac-10 teams ranked in the top 25 last week. No.8 Arizona St. won three of four games this week, No. 20 Cal split four contests, and No. 21 Stanford was 2-3 on the week.
