STANFORD NO. 1 IN COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER (www.baseballnews.com) POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. — Stanford University has been ranked No. 1 for the third consecutive NCAA Division I baseball poll of the 2002 season by Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

The Cardinal (4-2) beat No. 2 Florida St. two of three games in Tallahassee, Fla. over the past weekend. Stanford won the first two games by scores of 9-3 and 15-11. The Seminoles bounced back to take the third game, 7-6. The week prior, the Cardinal knocked off 16th ranked Cal. St. Fullerton two of three.

Stanford is hitting .349 as a team and is averaging 9.5 runs a game. The Cardinal has cracked 26 extra base hits in only six contests.

POLL NOTES: Four teams have been extremely hot to kick off the 2002 season. Arizona State is 7-0 after sweeping Tennessee three straight at home. Surprising Arizona is 10-1 on the season. The Wildcat pitching staff has been sensational with a 2.61 ERA through 11 games. The staff has struck out 85 batters and only walked 23. The University of San Diego has raced to a 9-0 record. It is the best start in school history. Florida is 5-0 after winning two straight at defending national champion Miami, Fla.
