TOP STORYLINES

• After going 4-1 over the last five games, the streaking Yellow Jackets are in the midst of a four-game road trip when they travel to No. 4 Louisville on March 22-24.

• Georgia Tech is coming off winning its first ACC series by taking two of three against Virginia, before slugging past Mercer on the road Tuesday.

• Tech continues to be the #CardiacJackets, putting on thriller after thriller again last week, winning two one-run ballgames, moving to 5-2 in thrillers this season.

• The Jackets enjoyed blasting 18 hits for 14 runs against a young Mercer team, following 7-3 and 6-5 wins over UVA on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

• This weekend will look to pit the immovable object versus the unstoppable force as the ACC’s No. 1 pitching and No. 1 hitting teams face off.

• There are few hotter teams in the country than Louisville, who’re 17-4 overall and 12-2 at home in 2019.
• Tech has only faced the Cardinals seven times since 2008, owning one victory in the teams’ all-time series.

• The offensive story for Georgia Tech continues to be catcher Kyle McCann and Michael Guldberg.

• Having won one ACC weekly honor and two nationally, McCann keeps putting up huge numbers. He hit .600 last week with six hits, three doubles and two home runs, also drawing nine walks.

• His 36 career homers ties five Jackets for 16th all-time, including Georgia Tech legend Mark Teixeira.

• Guldberg has hit gaudy numbers at the plate, being one of the best hitters in the country. In the past five games, he’s had 16 hits on .667 hitting, including the go-ahead, two-RBI double against Ga. Southern.

• He leads the ACC in batting average (.515) and hits (35).

• First baseman and RHP Tristin English will look to carry forward his momentum from being a Cape Cod All-Star last summer. The redshirt-junior is a two-time 2019 preseason all-American entering this weekend, as he’s expected to be one of the country’s top two-way players.

• Battling some nagging ailments over the last week and a half, English has been gutting out strong performances for Tech.

• Last week, English hit .357 for five hits, three doubles and four RBI, while also coming into the ninth inning to close the door on a pesky Virginia squad, getting the save and ensuring Tech walked away with the ACC series win.

• After catching fire at the plate the first week of March (six hits, six runs and a double), outfielder Chase Murray has missed the last six games due to an injury. He is officially listed as day-to-day.

• In his stead, Colin Hall has shifted to left field and Baron Radcliff has played right field to much success. Over the last five games, Hall has hit .364 for eight hits, one double and four RBI while Radcliff has four hits, two doubles and three RBI.

• Preseason expectations have been at an all-time high as the Yellow Jackets have built themselves into one of the oldest teams in the country, returning seven of nine starters and losing zero starting pitchers from a season ago.

• However, the Jackets will have to contend with the loss of Joey Bart and Wade Bailey to the MLB Draft, but Kyle McCann and Luke Waddell have looked primed and ready to take over at catcher and second base, respectively.

• Waddell missed four-straight games with a knee injury but returned for the Northwestern series. In the last five games, Waddell has hit .400 for 10 hits, six runs and four RBI.
