For the first time this season, the LSU baseball team roared through a week of its schedule without losing a game, and the top-25 rankings mostly rewarded it for doing so. 

LSU rose one spot in Baseball America's rankings (18), four in D1 Baseball's (19) and five in Collegiate Baseball's (18). LSU stayed put in Perfect Game's rankings (22). 

LSU's four-game win streak matches a season high.
