TOP STORYLINES

• Georgia Tech baseball looks to finish the season strong after a 2-0 stint in Ohio when it travels to Pitt on May 19-21 to conclude the regular season.

• Pitt owns the all-time series 10-11 where both teams have been noticeably better on their home fields (8-4 for Tech, 6-2 for Pitt).

• Georgia Tech’s last three ACC series wins have come against then-No. 13 Florida State, North Carolina and then-No. 3 Miami.

• Georgia Tech’s seasonal resume has begun to take shape with just five games remaining in the regular season.

• Georgia Tech currently sports the second-toughest strength of schedule in the country (.586) with its opponents’ record sitting at a whopping 1493-971. The next closest ACC teams in the SOS ranking are Clemson (fifth), Florida State (sixth), and North Carolina (10th).

• In the RPI, a key metric for determining postseason seeding and overall performance, Georgia Tech currently sits 25th.

• Only one team in the country has more wins against top-50 RPI teams than Georgia Tech’s 15 — No. 1 Tennessee (17). The next two closest teams are No. 10 Louisville and No. 14 Clemson (14).

• Inside the top-25 RPI, Georgia Tech has played an impressive 26 opponents, while just 16 of Tennessee’s are currently ranked 25 or better.

• Unsurprisingly, Georgia Tech has played more games against top-50 RPI teams than anyone in the country at a whopping 31. The next closest team nationally is North Carolina’s 29.

• Georgia Tech has won all three series against top-10 RPI teams (Virginia Tech, Miami, Georgia) and are 7-2 in those nine games. The Jackets have also won five series against top-30 teams and all but one series loss has come against top-35 teams.

• Against ACC teams currently ranked in the top 25 in the RPI, Georgia Tech owns a series sweep over No. 7 Virginia Tech and series wins against No. 6 Georgia, No. 8 Miami (Fla.), No. 17 Florida State and No. 24 North Carolina.

• The Jackets have been unstoppable now fully healthy as one of the nation’s top offenses, currently ranking No. 4 overall with 598 hits on the year.

• Tech also ranks fourth in average (.320), seventh in home runs (99) and scoring (9.1), sixth in slugging (.547) and runs (466), and 16th in on-base percentage (.415).

• Three of the last four weeks, Georgia Tech has had both a National Player of the Week and the ACC Player of the Week (Kevin Parada, twice, and Tim Borden II).

• ACC Player of the Year candidate Parada is currently second in the nation in home runs with 24. He needs one to tie the single-season program record (25 – Anthony Maisano).

• He also ranks third in RBI nationally (77), second in total bases (161), 10th in runs (65), 19th in slugging (.732) and 22nd in hits (78).

• Also red-hot at the plate are Chandler Simpson (.443), Andrew Jenkins (.385), Tres Gonzalez (.328), Stephen Reid (.326) and Tim Borden II (.310).

• Veteran RHP John Medich was moved to Friday night in Tech’s new-look weekend rotation and has looked terrific. In six starts on the year, Medich holds an fine 4.44 ERA.
