Despite dropping a weekend series for the first time all season, the Mercer baseball team jumped up into the No. 6 position in the most recent College Baseball Daily Top-25 Mid-Major Poll released earlier this week.
Mercer did drop two-of-three at North Florida this past weekend, but offset that with a dominant 10-1 mid-week win over No. 12 Georgia Tech on April 2 for its second win in as many seasons over the Yellow Jackets.
The Bears started the season ranked 25th in the poll, before moving up to 15th after week one, the #10 slot after week two, staying in the No. 7 position for two-straight weeks, slipping slightly down to a No. 8 ranking for three-straight weeks before moving up to its current No. 6 position.
The Bears are one of three Atlantic Sun Conference teams in the CBD Mid-Major poll, joining No. 10 Florida Gulf Coast and North Florida who is currently in the receiving votes section.
