CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- After a three-game sweep of Rutgers to open their season, the Miami Hurricanes rose eight spots to No. 20 in the first Collegiate Baseball poll of the 2013 regular season released Monday.

The Hurricanes, ranked No. 28 in the publication's preseason poll, outscored the visiting Scarlet Knights 16-5 over the weekend. Despite adverse weather conditions and still missing two top arms due to injuries, the Hurricane starters allowed zero earned runs in 17 combined innings of work.

Nine Hurricanes rookies made their debuts over the course of the weekend, and a number of them delivered key performances to help Miami open its season with a sweep. David Thompson (five RBI's), Alex Hernandez (three hits), Brandon Lopez (three hits) and Thomas Woodrey (one save), all part of a recruiting class ranked ninth-best in the nation by Collegiate Baseball, helped guide Miami to a perfect weekend.

The Hurricanes return to the diamond Wednesday, when they travel to FAU for a midweek matchup with the Owls. First pitch from FAU Stadium is set for 6:30 p.m.
