COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State baseball team (22-7, 7-1) has entered two of the major college baseball national polls after a recent run that included 15 wins in 16 games. The first place Buckeyes are ranked No. 22 in the Baseball America poll and No. 23 in the Collegiate Baseball poll.

Ohio State is tied with Minnesota atop the Big Ten Conference with a 7-1 league mark. The Buckeyes took three-of-four on the road from arch-rival Michigan last weekend, and will travel to defending Big Ten Champion Illinois this weekend for a four-game tilt.
