TOP STORYLINES

• Georgia Tech baseball returns home after an absolute gauntlet of a four-game stretch against the No. 18 and No. 2 teams in the country when it hosts Wofford on Tuesday, March 21.

• Georgia Tech and the Terriers have only faced off nine times since the teams first met in 1904. Tech owns a 9-0 record after last playing Wofford in 2007.

• Tech began last week by pushing No. 18 Auburn to the brink, falling in 12 innings on the road.

• It then went toe-to-toe against No. 2 Louisville in frigid Kentucky temperatures, falling on a 8-7 walkoff on Friday and winning Saturday, 10-4, before running out of gas on Sunday in a 9-3 loss late.

• Tech showed flashes of what the young roster can produce, as its bullpen arms of Joseph Mannelly, Ben King, Terry Busse, Cody Carwile and Jackson Vaughan all impressed against red-hot offenses.

• Tech also was buoyed by the return of LHP Camron Hill, who hadn’t pitched since Opening Weekend. He slammed the door shut in the Saturday win over Louisville.

• Another spark on the mound came in the start from true freshman RHP Luke Schmolke, who held the Cardinals in check on Saturday with a career-long 4.2 innings of one earned run and five strikeouts.

• Tech suffered from uncharacteristic errors on the weekend, entering the weekend with just 14 in 17 games before committing five against Louisville, leading to five unearned runs in the first two games.

• Offensively, the Jackets were able to put up 31 runs on the top-20 pitching staffs from both the SEC and ACC, failing to score more than seven runs in just one game (Sunday vs. Louisville).

• Impressing at the plate last week was veterans Stephen Reid (.500), Jake DeLeo (.476). Jadyn Jackson (.364) and Jack Rubenstein (.364), while also getting strong outings from youngsters like Kristian Campbell (.375).

• Nicholas Romano, Drew Compton and Jackson Finley all came through in the clutch, driving in five or more runs on the week.
