TOP STORYLINES

• Georgia Tech baseball will play against Georgia State this week in its first in-state matchup of the season. Tech’s first midweek game of the year vs. Georgia Southern was washed out.

• The Yellow Jackets have squared off the fourth-most times of any Division I opponent in the state of Georgia. This will be the 78th and 79th meeting between the two programs, with Tech entering with a 66-11 advantage.

• Tech is coming off a tough weekend series against No. 3 UCLA in which is took Game 1 on Friday in dramatic, walk-off fashion before struggling at the plate the rest of the series to drop two of three.

• Bright spots at the plate remained Kyle McCann and Austin Wilhite who both had three hits on the weekend.

• Wilhite leads the team on the season with a .350 average and seven hits, two for extra bases, while McCann is tied for second in the ACC for home runs with three.

• The bright spot on the weekend was the pitching staff. Against one of the top bullpens in the country in UCLA, Georgia Tech held its own.

Xzavion Curry tossed 5.0 innings with just one earned run allowed on Friday, while Brant Hurter went 5.0 on Sunday, fanning seven hitters without a walk and allowing one earned run.

• In relief, Tristin English dealt three full shutout innings, including extras, to finish the 11-inning thriller on Friday, striking out two. Jonathan Hughes has also been invaluable in relief, making two appearances this weekend (5.0 IP), with a line of 0 ER and 4 K’s.

• Despite a tough-luck last outing for Saturday starter Connor Thomas, he’s still fifth in the ACC with 15 K’s.

• Preseason expectations have been at an all-time high as the Yellow Jackets have built themselves into one of the oldest teams in the country, returning seven of nine starters and losing zero starting pitchers from a season ago.
