After an impressive week that included a perfect game and a weekend sweep in its conference opener, the Miami Hurricanes baseball team was rewarded in the most recent Baseball America Rankings released Monday.

Miami (10-5, 3-0) moved up three spots to No. 13 in this week’s rankings after posting a record of 5-0 last week. The Hurricanes opened the week with two wins against Villanova and then followed that up with a three-game sweep of Boston College. It was the team’s first sweep of an ACC opponent since sweeping North Carolina in April of 2012.

Starting pitcher Javi Salas was the star of the week, throwing the second perfect game in school history last Tuesday when Miami handled Villanova 17-0. Salas was also named the ACC pitcher of the week for his accomplishment.

“It's an honor to be recognized for my achievement this week, but the credit belongs to my teammates who made this game possible,” Salas told HurricaneSports. “I'm so happy that my teammates and I were part of making history.”

Miami’s starting pitching was fantastic as whole during the five game stretch, allowing just four earned runs in 34.1 innings pitched with an ERA of 1.05.

Next up for the Hurricanes is Bethune-Cookman in a midweek contest Tuesday at Alex Rodriguez Park before heading on the road to face Stetson on Wednesday. Miami will then travel to Atlanta for a three-game set against Georgia Tech this weekend.
