Jackets Begin Road Trip at No. 18 Auburn – Baseball — Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets


• Georgia Tech baseball heads out on the road for a grueling stretch of top-20 opponents, beginning at No. 18 Auburn on Tuesday, March 14.

• Auburn is Tech’s second-most common opponent with 243 games played since 1897. Last season was the first year since 2014 that the two teams haven’t played.

• Georgia Tech has looked just as potent at the plate as in years’ past, hitting .303 through 16 games for 70 extra-base hits and 27 home runs.

• Five Jackets are hitting .300 or better, led by two-way talent Jackson Finley (.452) and Jake DeLeo (.419).

• Also hitting .300 are Angelo Dispigna (.383), Jack Rubenstein (.377) and Nico Senese (.303).

• Finley was once again one of the top two-way players in the country, hitting .500 last week with three doubles and a home run, while also allowing just one run on three hits in 4.2 innings against Notre Dame to sport a 1.53 ERA.

• Another one of the top arms for Tech has been veteran Ben King.

• King so far has been sensational, working to a 2-0 record and 0.00 ERA through 12.0 innings and six appearances. He has worked to a 15:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

• Terry Busse has also proved to be one of the top closers in the country, working toward his fourth six-out save against Notre Dame, giving him six on the season to co-lead the country.

• In six appearances and 10.0 innings, Busse has allowed just three hits and worked to a 20:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

• Also impressing out of Tech’s bullpen has been Joseph Mannelly (1.42 ERA), Jackson Vaughan (3.86), Aeden Finateri (4.80).
