Saturday’s College Baseball Top-50 Scoreboard/Wrapup (4/23/11)

April 23, 2011
By

Saturday’s wide-open action in the CB360 top-50 produced six upsets of top-10 teams (#1 Virginia, #2 South Carolina, #6 North Carolina twice, #8 Oregon State and #9 Texas) while  Kansas State and UC Riverside wrapped up series sweeps of their CB360 top-50 opponents and seven other teams – Miami, UAB, Oregon, Stanford, St. Mary’s, Missouri and High Point – all completed series upsets by virtue of their results on Saturday. In general, it was another huge day for the underdogs – as the higher-ranked teams won only 55% of Saturday’s games (26-21) featuring CB360 top-50 teams.  front-page photo courtesy of UAB

The upset trend continued in the Pac-10, as: Oregon beat #23 Arizona again to take that series (7-3) … #26 Stanford rallied for a series-clinching win vs. #24 UCLA (5-2) … and Washington State won 2-0 at #8 Oregon State, halting the Beavers’ 11-game win streak.
