By By Brandon Parker
After games on Saturday, April 21
In the first six weeks of the baseball season, it's been hard to separate the cream of the crop. Last week, the first five teams have three losses combined.
Things separated a bit in this week's rankings, as JH Rose and Southeast Guilford saw their 15- and 10-game win streaks snapped, respectively. Providence, meanwhile, moved even closer to entering the top 10 by moving to No. 12 in the latest POWERADE FAB 50 rankings.
Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):
1. Providence (Charlotte) 17-1 (1) Panthers continue to roll behind strong pitching and play at the plate.
2. South Point (Belmont) 18-0 (2) Red Raiders are on cusp of securing their fourth Big South Conference title in five seasons.
3. T.C. Roberson (Asheville) 19-2 (6) Rams will put 43-game home win streak on line Tuesday as they look to avenge a loss earlier this season to No. 10 North Buncombe.
