Series History

Georgia Tech (15-6, 4-4 ACC)
Georgia Tech enters the week on a high after sweeping a midweek doubleheader against Virginia in dramatic fashion. Freshman Colleen Darragh hit a run-rule walk-off grand slam in the first game to give Tech a 10-2 victory in six innings, before the Jackets edged the Cavaliers 3-2 in extra innings in game two.

Senior Hayley Downs leads the team with a .418 batting average and three additional Jackets are hitting above .300 – Ashley Thomas (.371), Alysha Rudnik (.367) and Kanani Cabrales (.346). As a team, the Jackets are out-hitting the opposition 160-136 and out-scoring the competition 109-82.

In the circle, the duo of Kylie Kleinschmidt and Cabrales has combined to pitch the majority of Tech’s innings. Kleinschmidt owns a 1.07 ERA and a 10-3 record. The junior has allowed just 13 earned runs with 79 strikeouts in 84.2 innings of works. Cabrales owns a 5.61 ERA and a 5-3 record.
