The ACC baseball tournament schedule is out and Virginia will be thinking revenge with its first two games.
Out of Pool B, the third-seeded Cavaliers (45-9, 22-8 ACC) will take on sixth-seeded Virginia Tech (35-19, 15-14) at 3 p.m., Wednesday, get seventh-seeded Georgia Tech (33-23, 15-15) at 11 a.m., Thursday, and will close pool play with second-seeded Florida State (44-11, 20-10) at 11 a.m., Saturday.
Should it win its pool, UVa would play for the league championship at 1 p.m., Sunday.
All games will be played at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, N.C. The pool play games will air on ACC's Regional Sports Networks, and the championship game will be broadcast by ESPN2. All games will be made available on ESPN3.com.
What are Virginia's chances to take the title? Well, in 2013, UVa tied a school record with 45 regular season wins. It lost just two of 10 ACC series — at Georgia Tech and at Virginia Tech. Granted, the rubber match in Atlanta was called in the sixth inning due to inclement weather. The 'Hoos trailed just 3-2 at the time.
In its best weekend of the season, Virginia swept then-No. 5 Florida State with three dazzling pitching efforts.
In the Brian O'Connor era, the Cavs have won two ACC Tournaments — 2009 and 2011. Both came in Durham, both were springboards to NCAA Tournament runs to the College World Series.
