CHARLOTTE, N.C. – No. 7-seeded Georgia Tech baseball will play Pitt on Tuesday, May 24 at 11 a.m. and Louisville on Thursday, May 26 at 11 a.m. as part of Pool B in the ACC Tournament, the conference announced Sunday.

Winners of six straight, The Yellow Jackets (33-21, 15-15 ACC) will first play its fourth-consecutive game against the No. 11-seeded Panthers, having swept Pitt in the final regular-season league series. Members of different divisions, Georgia Tech and No. 2-seeded Louisville did not play in the regular season.
