GREENVILLE, N.C. - Despite a 1-3 week during its recent west coast road trip, the East Carolina baseball team still remains ranked in four of the six national polls that were released Monday afternoon.
The Pirates (8-6) are ranked No. 16 by Rivals.com (down six spots), No. 20 by Baseball America (down six), No. 21 by Ping!Baseball (down four) and No. 25 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (down eight). ECU received 36 votes for the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll and dropped out of Collegiate Baseball's Top 30 rankings.
