Maryland baseball is back in the top 25 for the first time since the opening week of the college baseball season.
After being unranked for the past month, the Terps have cracked the top 25 on multiple respected college baseball sites.
D1 Baseball ranks the Terrapins as the No. 24 team in the country. College Baseball Central also has Maryland 24th in its most recent rankings. Baseball America differs slightly, as they have Maryland as the last team in its top-25 list.
These rankings are a welcome development for a Maryland team that started the season 1-5. Since then, the Terps have ripped off 17 wins over their last 20 contests. Granted, most of the wins have come from beating up on lesser opponents, but that was still enough for Maryland to gain national recognition once again.
In addition, after last weekend’s series sweep of Rutgers, the Terps have started Big Ten play strong with a 5-1 record, sitting only behind Minnesota (6-0) in the conference standings.
Maryland will try to maintain its top-25 status this week, with the team slated to play four games. The Terps will host the Richmond Spiders for a midweek contest Tuesday at 4 p.m. before going on the road to Nebraska this weekend for a three-game tilt.
