Storylines

• The Yellow Jacket offense has been on a historic run of late, hitting 20 homeruns this season, the second-most in Division I and the most among the Power 5.

• The White & Gold has hit 19 home runs over its last seven games (since the first game of the Longwood doubleheader), the most in a six-game stretch in 13 seasons (20 HR – March 4-13, 2011).

• The power production has come from everywhere in the lineup. Nine different Jackets have connected for a long ball this season (Black (4), Hunter (4), Dobbins (3), Allen (2), Sileo (2), Tucker (2), Edgmon (1), Domingue (1) and Minghini (1)), the most among Power 5 teams headed into the weekend.

• Senior 3B Mallorie Black earned her first ACC Player of the Week honor for leading the Jackets with a .727 avg/.786 obp/1.182 slug. over the course of four games against No. 9 Stanford, No. 12 LSU, No. 22 Northwestern and Minnesota (RV) last week. Black reached base multiple times in each game, going 8 for 11 over the course of the Clearwater Invitational, adding two doubles, a home run, two walks, a hit-by-pitch and a team-best six runs scored.

• Among Power 5 teams, the Jackets are tied for the fifth-most doubles (20) and own the 7th highest slugging % (.615).

• Seven Yellow Jackets were hitting over .300 through the opening 10 games of the season (Allen, Tucker, Black, Sileo, Vukadinocich, Edgmon and Hunter) – the most in the Aileen Morales era and the most in 10 seasons. (2014).

• Kinsey Norton secured her first win as a Yellow Jacket in her last appearance, pitching the final 3.0 innings against Georgia State while allowing only one baserunner, the most dominant 3+ inning outing of her career.
