• This is just the third time the Jackets and Owls have faced off in a three-game series, usually battling in midweek contests (2006, 2009).

• Head coach Danny Hall reached 1,300 career wins against FSU, becoming just the fourth active Division I coach to reach the milestone and 20th all-time.

• Coach Hall (1,301) and KSU skipper Mike Sansing (1,153) are two of the winningest active coaches in Division I, ranking fourth and sixth, respectively.

• Tech is still No. 2 in the ACC in hitting at .284 for the season and is No. 2 in league play at .295.

• Malloy (32) and Gonzalez (31) rank third and fourth, respectively, in the ACC for walks. Gonzalez is fourth in on-base percentage (.469), while Parada leads the league with 14 doubles.

• True freshman Marquis Grissom, Jr. will join the weekend rotation, having worked to a 3.86 ERA in just three appearances back from preseason injury.

• Weekend stalwarts Brant Hurter (3.78 ERA) and Andy Archer (4.06 ERA) will look to get back on track after taking losses last weekend.
