Zags Renew Rivalry With UW

The Gonzaga University baseball team cracked the Collegiate Baseball newspaper’s Top 30 for the first time this season Monday. The Bulldogs, who started the 2011 season receiving votes, garnered 446 points this week to place 24th in the poll.

The Bulldogs, who are 16-8-1 overall and have lost only once in their last 13 games, play four games at home this week. They will host in-state rival Washington State University Tuesday at 6 p.m. and this weekend they will open the West Coast Conference season against the defending champion University of San Diego.
