Arizona baseball: Wildcats ranked 7th in all national polls

A lot of consensus on where this team should be now.

Jason Bartel

We are now through four weeks of Pac-12 play, and the Arizona Wildcats have taken three of those series, giving them a 7-5 record in conference.

The latest week, which included a demolition of Arizona State and a series win at Washington State, has moved the Cats up in all of the polls to seventh.

Here’s a look:

The lone team to take a series from the Wildcats this year, the Oregon State Beavers, are still the consensus No. 1 team in the country after setting a new conference record with their 23rd straight win over the weekend. They did need a 16 inning thriller on Saturday to get past Utah, but they did it anyway.

This week, Arizona faces the Grand Canyon Antelopes on Tuesday in Phoenix before returning to Tucson for a three-game set against the Oregon Ducks. That three-game series will take place from Thursday-Saturday because of the Easter holiday.
