      Tide baseball continues Top 25 climb after series win over Auburn

      Alabama baseball improved to No. 8 in the national rankings following it's series win over Auburn.

      The Tide are eighth in the nation in the Baseball America poll and the Collegiate Baseball rankings. They are the highest ranked SEC team in both polls.

      Eight SEC teams are ranked in at least one of the two polls.

      Alabama took two of three from Auburn, winning on Saturday and Sunday after falling to the Tigers on Friday night. The Tide also lost a non-conference game against UAB last week.

      Alabama's (24-11, 10-5) won four out of five series in SEC play and are alone in first place in the conference standings.

      The Tide host Jackson State on Tuesday before traveling to Birmingham to play UAB on Wednesday. Alabama plays at Tennessee this weekend.
