TOP STORYLINES

• No. 6 Georgia Tech baseball will close out the 2019 regular season this weekend when it hosts ACC-foe Pitt on Thursday-Saturday, May 16-18.

• The Jackets currently hold a one-game advantage on Miami and North Carolina for the Coastal Division and are second overall in the ACC.

• Georgia Tech also owns 11 wins against RPI top-25 rankings, more than any team but Vanderbilt and Mississippi State (12), as it looks to lock up a Regional host seed.

• Tech has faced three of the top four teams nationally in fewest hits allowed/9 innings (Georgia, UCLA and Louisville) a whopping nine times, and has five wins and two series victories against them.

• Georgia Tech and Pitt have faced off just 15 times since they first battled in 2014. Despite going 7-2 over a stretch from 2015-18, Tech has lost the last three, including a gut-wrenching 14-inning affair on the road last season.

• The Jackets once again will feature its weekend rotation of Amos Willingham, Connor Thomas and Cort Roedig. The trio owns weekend series wins over then-No. 9 North Carolina and Duke.

• Thomas leads the ACC in walks allowed/9 innings (1.61) and is second in the ACC in strikeout-to-walk ratio with a 5.25.

• Offensively, Tristin English is obliterating the ACC thus far. He currently leads the conference in ACC play in hitting (.396), slugging (.868), homers (11) and runs scored (32), while also ranking second in RBI (37) and third in on-base percentage (.468).

• Jackson Webb has also exploded at the plate. In his first two weeks of May, he’s hit .435 for 10 hits, one home run and six RBI.

• Nick Wilhite been red-hot in the month of May, hitting .652 with 15 hits, two doubles, a triple and two homers through seven games.

• The middle infielder combo of Luke Waddell (SS) and Austin Wilhite (2B) are still keeping order both offensively and defensively. The two have combined for 144 putouts, while also recording 107 hits and 60 RBI.

• The 3-4-5 power of the lineup has proved to be absolutely lethal at the plate. In the last 10 games, Tristin English, Kyle McCann and Baron Radcliff have combined for 18 home runs.
