The Bryant University Baseball team has surged into the national poll, checking in at number 30 after riding the nation’s longest win streak at 19 games and counting. It is Bryant’s first ever national ranking at the Division I level. They are the only team in their conference to be ranked in the top 30, and the first team from New England to be nationally ranked since 2011. Bryant got off to a tough start to the season as they went down to Houston to begin the year, then up to Oregon to face one of the nation’s elite teams, and finally ending the cross-country tour in Ohio to take on Ohio State. But after an 0-6-1 start, the Bulldogs have caught fire, winning 23 of their past 26 games. Bryant is getting it done on all sides of the ball, batting .275 as a team, pitching to the tune of a 2.86 ERA, and fielding at a rate of over .970. They are 12-0 in the conference and 13-0 at home on the season. The Bulldogs will look to keep the momentum going against Stony Brook and two-time defending NEC champion Sacred Heart over the next five games.
