#LEADOFF
>> Having won seven of its last 10 and cracking the Top 25 for the first time this season, No. 23 Georgia Tech heads north for a battle at ACC newcomer Pitt this weekend.

>> The Yellow Jackets have won back-to-back ACC series over then-No. 22 Miami and then-No. 13 North Carolina and are looking to win three straight ACC sets for the first time since 2011.

>> Tech and Pitt have never met in baseball, and the Jackets are playing in the Keystone State for the first time since 1924.

>> Tech is fourth in the ACC with a .286 team average, boasting a balanced attack with eight players hitting .280+ and already 36 sacrifice bunts or flies in 25 games – well more than half of last year’s total of 62 in 64 games.

>> The last 11 wins for the Yellow Jackets have all been in comeback fashion, thanks in part to a bullpen that has pitched to a 1.90 ERA and a .191 opponent average over those 11 wins.

>> Daniel Spingola brings a career-best 10-game hitting streak into the weekend, while Thomas Smith has reached safely in 19 straight games.
