There were no changes from last week’s Trib 10 baseball and softball power rankings.

Perhaps part of the reason that all 20 teams are still feeling the power is because they are stepping up their game as the regular season winds down and the playoffs are a week and a half away.

Then again, maybe Mother Nature’s wet start to May and the boatload of postponements each day could have played a factor.

Either way, the baseball rankings remain the same, and only two teams slipped down in the softball Top 10.

There were no changes at No. 1 as Franklin Regional baseball and Bethel Park softball are once again on top for a fifth straight week.

Here is the latest power rankings with zero classification boundaries. Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking.
