May 11, 2022
• With ACC baseball in the final two weeks of the 2022 regular season, Miami (17-7 in the league) holds a two-game lead over Virginia Tech (14-8) in the coastal race, while Louisville ( 15-8- 1) leads Notre Dame (13-8) by a game and a half in the Atlantic Division.
• The next two weekends of the conference series will determine seedings and pairings for the 2022 ACC Baseball Championship, which takes place May 24-29 at Truist Field in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Atlantic and Coastal Division champions will earn the top two seeds of the tournament. Miami and Louisville have already clinched berths in the 12-team tournament, but the division winners and top seeds are up for grabs. Tickets for the tournament can be purchased through CharlotteKnights.com or by calling the Knights box office at 704-274-8282.
• In addition to conference play over the next two weekends, ACC teams still have non-conference midweek games as they look to improve the resumption of NCAA tournaments. Fifteen non-league games were scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, 11 of which will be hosted by ACC teams. The ACC holds a 241-68 (.770) record against non-conference opponents this season, including a 188-29 mark in home games.
• Virginia Tech, unranked at the start of the 2022 season, continues to be the ACC’s top-ranked team in four of the six major national polls, including a Perfect Game No. 3 national ranking. Four ACC teams are ranked in the top 10 this week in the national USA Today Coaches and Baseball America polls, and at least five ACC teams are ranked in the top 20 in the nation by every major publication.
• Duke senior outfielder RJ Schreck has been named one of 10 finalists for the 2022 Senior CLASS award. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as a senior student or a Division I graduate of the NCAA and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, class, character and competition. Schreck currently has a .324 batting average, .414 on-base percentage and .556 slugging percentage with eight home runs and 28 RBIs. Off the court, Schreck majors in computer science and is working toward minors in economics and cultural anthropology.
• Former Louisville Reid Detmers became the first pitcher to throw a solo no-hitter in the major leagues this season as the Los Angeles Angels shut out the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. The 2019 ACC pitcher of the year accomplished the feat in his 11th career MLB start. Months shy of his 23rd birthday, Detmers is the youngest pitcher in franchise history to throw a no-hitter, and the youngest pitcher in MLB to do so since 2006.
