CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The Miami Hurricanes baseball team, riding momentum from the nation's longest winning streak, rose as high as No. 11 in the weekly college baseball polls released Monday.

Miami (25-12, 14-4 ACC), which has won 12 consecutive games dating back to March 24, jumped from No. 20 to No. 11 in Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's rankings, matching its best ranking of the season from the publication (Feb. 17-23).

The Hurricanes also made among the biggest leaps of any team in the Baseball America poll (No. 15 from No. 24) and Perfect Game's weekly rankings (No. 17 from No. 25).

After posting its third consecutive three-game ACC sweep for the first time in program history, Miami moved into a tie for first place in the ACC with a 14-4 mark in league play.

The Hurricanes will return to the diamond on Wednesday, April 16 for a matchup with in-state foe FAU. First pitch for the game is set for 6 p.m. from Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
