TOP STORYLINES

• Georgia Tech baseball will try to extend its winning ways at home when it hosts No. 16 Virginia Tech on April 12-14 at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.

• The Jackets and Hokies have squared off 65 times, dating back to 1980 with Tech holding a 42-23 advantage.

• Tech had enjoyed incredible success against VT, winning 26 of 37 since 2011 before dropping all three games last season.

• Tech’s remaining schedule is rated as the third-toughest in all of Division I as its remaining opponents have a combined .710 winning percentage (504-206).

• Tech’s will have weekend series against No. 16 Virginia Tech, No. 11 Virginia, No. 2 Clemson, No. 7 Duke, and No. 10 Florida State, as well as unranked Miami (Fla.).

• Tech will look to its Top 2 hitters to help lead it down the stretch in Trey Yunger (.369) and Drew Burress (.368).

• Yunger was sensational at Pitt, hitting .429 for six hits with a double and home run, while Burress hit .364 with four hits and his 15th home run of the season.
