A tough week on the baseball diamond has resulted in Michigan falling in the latest baseball rankings.

Erik Bakich’s bunch is still the only B1G team to be ranked in the top 25.
This weekend, Michigan heads west for a three-game series against Cal Poly. between Friday and Sunday. The Mustangs are 3-5 on the young season, and have already fallen to the Wolverines, losing 8-5 on Feb. 15.
