POWERADE Minnesota Baseball Rankings: Week 8

By Christopher Parish

After games ending Saturday, June 2

This week's installment of the POWERADE Minnesota Weekly Rankings brings a bombshell -- the top-ranked team, Burnsville, is out. Two losses in the sectional tournament has sent the Blaze home early. So too are top contenders such as Little Falls and Sleepy Eye St. Mary's, the latter of which chose a poor time to lose its first game of the season. So who's next up? Red Wing, a 22-1 squad that has held firm in our rankings for weeks waiting for an opportunity. They've gotten it, and now the Wingers sit at No. 1 in our rankings.

1. Red Wing (22-1) Last week: No. 5

2. West Lutheran (21-2) Last week: No. 2

3. Maple Grove (20-4) Last week: No. 3
