There were some major moves since the last power rankings, but not necessarily at the top. Cal State Fullerton and UC Irvine both lost back-to-back games for the first time, but did they slide? And with four teams apparently fighting it out to show who can be worse in the recent week or so, who ultimately slides all the way to the bottom?
SAN DIEGO — The high school All-Americans representing the East squad fell 7-6 Sunday night in the Perfect Game All-American Classic at Petco Park.
Georgia commit Clint Frazier helped the East squad jump out to an early 6-1 lead. He got the East on the board first with a line drive sacrifice fly in the first inning. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound five-tool outfielder singled, stole a base and scored in the fourth inning on Mississippi State football commit Corder Sandberg’s two run single to right field.
Frazier later added another RBI when he one-hopped the centerfield fence with another laser shot, but it wasn’t enough. The West rallied for six runs in the sixth and seventh innings and the East squandered scoring chances, having two runners thrown out at home plate.
There was plenty of action in the game and we were there to capture it. Check out the top 20 shots of the East squad:

Frazier pitched seven scoreless innings for the Waves (1-1). He scattered five hits and struck out six while only walking one. Frazier fared much better than his counterpart Jonathan Gray, also considered one of the top sophomore pitching prospects. Gray allowed only two hits, but lasted only 2 2/3 innings for Oklahoma (1-1). He struggled mightily with his control walking six batters, mainly because he couldn’t command his fastball.
