TOP STORYLINES

• Riding a three-game winning streak, Georgia Tech will look to continue its momentum when it heads back on the road to take on Virginia Tech at English Field on April 18-20.

• The Jackets are coming off completing the season sweep of No. 23 Auburn, blasting the Tigers 11-6 at home on Tuesday.

• The midweek win comes on the heels of its fifth-consecutive ACC series win, defeating Boston College on the road in the Saturday, Sunday games.

• The Yellow Jackets have won five-straight league series for the first time since 2005.

• Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech have only squared off on the diamond 50 times since 1980.

• Georgia Tech owns a 33-17 all-time advantage and a 12-6 advantage when on the road against the Hokies.

• Last weekend, Tech’s rotation got back to normal as Connor Thomas and Brant Hurter combined to allow just one run over the final two games of the series.

• Thomas allowed just one run on five hits in seven innings while Hurter pitched a two-hit shutout for seven innings, punching out nine overall.

• Last week, Tech had three players hit .313 or better.

• Austin Wilhite continues to be on fire, hitting .471 since April 9 for eight hits, a double and three RBI. Luke Waddell is also hitting well as the leadoff at .421 (eight hits, a double and four RBI).

• Jackson Webb has started the last two games at third base and has taken advantage. He’s hit .357 for five hits, two doubles and three RBI in the last week.

• Colin Hall has also been a big time bat over the last five games, hitting .300 for six runs, a double, four RBI and four runs.

• Tristin English continues to bring power at three hits, a double and a home run in the last four games.

• English took a hard hit-by-pitch on Sunday and remains day-to-day on his return to the field, while still being available on the mound.

• After catching fire at the plate the first week of March (six hits, six runs and a double), outfielder Chase Murray has missed the last 18 games due to an injury. He is looking at possibly returning this weekend.

• In his stead, Colin Hall has shifted to left field and Baron Radcliff has played right field to much success. Over the last 10 games, Hall has hit .268 for 11 hits, three doubles, and eight RBI while Radcliff has eight hits, one double, one homer and seven RBI.
