UT Tyler Baseball moves up in D-III rankings

TYLER, March 13, 2013--The UT Tyler baseball team has moved up four spots to No. 20 in the most recent D3baseball.com Top-25 rankings released on Sunday.  The Patriots went 4-1 over the past week, including a three-game sweep of conference-rival Mississippi College.

UT Tyler (14-4) is the only American Southwest Conference team in the top-25 poll, joining fellow-Texas school Trinity (7) in the poll for the second-straight week.

Last week's No. 1 team, Wheaton (Mass.) dropped two spots to No. 3 in the current rankings, Making Cortland St. the new No. 1 team in the poll.

Whitworth, who the Patriots defeated twice a week ago, dropped from No. 22 to receiving votes in the current poll.

The Patriots will take on non-conference opponent Hendrix on Tuesday night at 6 pm in Arkansas, followed by a three-game ASC matchup with Texas-Dallas beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday in Richardson.
