SSC Teams with National Rankings: #1 Tampa and #7 St. Leo

Tampa

  • The Spartans stay at the top of the national polls, as they are at the top of the NCBWA poll for the 10th straight week. Tampa received all 20 first-place votes, making this the eighth time UT has been the unanimous number-one team this season. The Spartans improved their record to 34-4 and 15-3 in SSC play after sweeping Florida Tech this weekend. The Spartans outscored the Panthers 38-15. Anthony Nunez and Stephen Klein led the way. On Friday, Nunez launched a solo shot to left field for the game’s first run, and Klein hit a 2-run home run to right in the seventh inning, resulting in the game-winning hit. In the day-night doubleheader on Saturday, the duo combined for 8 hits, 10 RBIs, and 6 runs scored in the two games. The two look to do similar this weekend in St. Petersburg against Eckerd.

Eckerd

  • The Tritons have played below .500 baseball this season. They are 16-20 and 5-13 in SSC play. They are 2-8 in their last 10 conference games and have lost 4 straight. Eckerd looks to turn things around as they host Tampa.
