Virginia sits with an overall record of 29-7, 10-5 in the ACC. They will travel to Virginia Commonwealth tomorrow evening, before returning home to face Georgia Tech in a critical ACC weekend series.

In other UVa baseball news, sophomore pitcher Jacob Thompson is this week's ACC Pitcher of the Week.
