2005 SEC Baseball Standings Week Four

Riding the momentum after a sweep of the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge, the South Carolina Gamecocks are the week's biggest mover as they pulled into a tie in the SEC's Eastern Division with the Florida Gators.

For the first time ever the Gamecocks swept the Fighting Tigers, but it was it now makes USC 11-6 against LSU in the last four seasons. For Coach Smoke Laval's club it was another tough weekend as his team lost a series for the third consecutive week and is in last place in the Western Division standings. Things could go from bad to worse in the coming weeks as LSU takes on Ole Miss this coming weekend and then travels to Arkansas one week later.

The following is an up-to-date look at the conference standings through four weeks of the season:

Western Division
Alabama 8-4 24-10
