TUCSON, Ariz. — For the fourth straight week, Clemson (30-4) has been ranked No. 1 in Collegiate Baseball newspaper's NCAA Division I baseball poll.

Despite losing twice last week (Georgia, 5-4 and North Carolina, 12-4), the Tigers earned one more point than Alabama and two more points than Stanford. Clemson won three times last week with one victory over Georgia and two more over North Carolina. Both teams have been ranked this season. Currently North Carolina is ranked 12th in the nation.

The Tigers are hitting .336 as a team with 59 homers in 34 contests. Clemson's fielding percentage is ranked among the nation's best at .974, and the pitching staff has a 3.67 ERA with a better than 2:1 strikeout to walk ratio (252 strikeouts, 105 walks).

POLL NOTES: Several other teams are also on a roll. Florida Atlantic has the longest winning streak in the nation with 25 consecutive wins. It is the longest winning streak for Florida Atlantic since tying the NCAA record in 1999 with 34 straight wins. Baylor has won six straight while Louisiana St. has won five consecutive contests. Oklahoma (1-3 last week), Ohio St. (3-2), Southern Mississippi (3-2) and East Carolina (3-2) all fell out of the poll this week.
