BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The UAB baseball team was ranked the No. 30 team in the nation in the latest National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Poll, as announced on Monday.

UAB is having one of its best seasons in program history. The squad holds a 34-16 overall record with four games remaining in the regular season. Its 34 wins in 2014 mark its most victories in a single season since 1995. In addition, the Blazers are 19-8 in Conference USA play and are in second place, one game behind No. 17 Rice. With three C-USA contests left to play, the club is guaranteed its best finish as a league member.

The Green and Gold are currently on a tear, winning their past 10 games. Their 10-game winning streak is the sixth-longest active streak in the nation. During this stretch, UAB has outscored its opponents 53-16 and has swept three consecutive Conference USA opponents.
