UA baseball team grabs second No. 1 ranking

The University of Arizona lost one game on the opening weekend but gained a No. 1 ranking.

The Wildcats, fresh off a 2-1 series victory at Georgia, has moved up to the top spot in Baseball America’s poll for the first time since 1989.

UA fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in the Collegiate Baseball poll. Arizona State took over No. 1

The Wildcats open their home schedule on Friday at Sancet Stadium at 7 p.m. against Sacramento State.

“To move up in the poll despite dropping a game is a real indication of how difficult it can be to go to the SEC and win a series,” Lopez said.

Arizona lost its opener to Georgia before winning the final two, including a 9-8 win on Sunday. UA’s 7-1 victory on Saturday came in front of Georgia’s largest non-conference game at Foley Field in school history with nearly 4,000 in attendance.

“It was a tough environment, we have to get better in some areas, but we learned a lot and will be better for it,” Lopez said.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
