KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Tony Vitello’s baseball Vols dropped, but not much in this week’s national baseball rankings. Tennessee fell to 5th in the updated USA Today Coaches poll. The Vols are also now 6th and 7th respectively in the D1 and Baseball America polls.

The Vols were as high as #3 in the land in the USA Today coaches poll entering this past weekend’s series with in-state rival and second ranked Vanderbilt. The Commodores took two of three of three from the Volunteers at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Tennessee won Game-2 thanks to a memorable performance by Evan Russell, who smacked three home runs including a grand slam in the UT’s 8-4 win over the Commodores.

We’ll update the Vols ranking in the USA Today poll as soon as it’s released.
