DALLAS – The Oral Roberts baseball team inched closer to a top 25 ranking Monday as the Golden Eagles were receiving votes in the latest NCBWA Top 25 released by the organization.
ORU enters the week at 27-11 on the season after going 3-1 last week including a 15-5 win at No. 10 Oklahoma State. The win gave the Golden Eagles a season sweep of the Cowboys and a 5-1 record against Big 12 teams.
The Golden Eagles are one of the hottest teams in the nation winning 19 of their last 21 games which includes a nine-game home win streak – the fifth best in the country. ORU also ranks in the top 11 nationally in nearly every offensive category including third in batting average and eighth in on base percentage.
ORU returns home Tuesday after a seven game road swing to host UALR at J.L. Johnson Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
