Redlands baseball team moves into rankings

The University of Redlands baseball team gained a No. 23 ranking in the Week 5 D3baseball.com Top-25 Poll.
 
Redlands (21-3, 13-2 SCIAC) has slowly crept onto the voters’ radars, winning 16 of its past 17 games. It took 10 innings to down the Bulldogs in their lone loss during that span, as Menlo College handed the team its last defeat on March 19 in the California Invitational by a count of 6-9.
 
This marks Redlands’ first appearance in the D3baseball.com Top-25 Poll since it was ranked for five weeks at the start of the 2008 season.
 
The Bulldogs next take on Whittier College in a three-game Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) set on Friday (April 2) and Saturday (April 3). The Maroon and Gray travels to Whittier for a 3 p.m. bout on Friday before hosting the Poets in a Saturday doubleheader. The first pitch of game one is set for 11 a.m. at The Yard on Saturday.
