TOP STORYLINES

• No. 20 Georgia Tech returns home for a brief reprieve, hosting SEC foe Auburn on Tuesday at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.

• Auburn is Georgia Tech’s second-most played opponent in program history and the Jackets’ oldest opponent. Tech and Auburn first squared off on April 10, 1897.

• The Jackets stopped the skid on Sunday when they won 4-2 over Notre Dame and will look to continue in the midweek before a pivotal ACC series against Virginia Tech.

• After a cold series offensively, Tech moves to No. 2 in the ACC, hitting .294 as a team.

• Georgia Tech also finds itself among the ACC’s best in doubles (second), hits (second), on-base percentage (second), slugging percentage (second) and triples (second).

• True freshman Kevin Parada still leads the Jackets and is fifth in the ACC, hitting .378 on 42 hits.

• Also hitting north of .300 is Luke Waddell (.327), Drew Compton (.324), Tres Gonzalez (.322) and Justyn-Henry Malloy (.301).

• Gonzalez ranks third in the ACC in walks (23) and fourth in on-base percentage (.475), while Parada ranks second with 10 doubles.

• Getting the start on Tuesday and making his first collegiate appearance will be true freshman RHP Marquis Grissom, Jr.

• The son of two-time MLB all-star and former Atlanta Brave, Grissom, Jr. was rated as the 11th overall pitcher in the country by Perfect Game.

• In three years of showcase ball, the Atlanta native recorded a 6-2 record and a 2.30 ERA over 107 innings. He struck out 107 hitters for a better than 2:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
