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

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

The Cardinal (12-4) has won four straight and six of their last seven games. Stanford is hitting .347 as a team with 67 extra base hits and averaging 8.9 runs a contest. The pitching staff has struck out 126 batters and walked 51 during those 16 games.

POLL NOTES: A number of other teams are also on a roll. No. 2 Florida St., which top-ranked Stanford beat two of three several weeks ago in Tallahassee, Fla., has now won five straight after beating sixth ranked Florida two straight over the past weekend. Third ranked Clemson began the season with six straight wins. Two of those victories were against No. 4 South Carolina over the past weekend. One of the wins was a 10-inning thriller won by the Tigers, 11-10. East Carolina has rocketed out of the gates with a perfect 10-0 record. Wake Forest (10-1) is in the midst of a 9-game winning streak. Arizona (17-4) has put together a 6-game winning streak. Another red-hot team is Houston. The Cougars beat Miami (Fla.), Cal.
