Pitt's baseball team (36-14) will conclude its regular season this week with a midweek contest at Ohio State Tuesday at noon, and a three-game series at home with USF Thursday through Saturday at Trees Field. Game times for the weekend are 6 p.m., 3 p.m. and noon respectively.
With four regular-season games remaining, the Panthers are just three wins from tying, and four wins from breaking the Pitt school record for wins in a season. With 36 victories, Pitt would reach 40 wins for the first time ever if they are able to break their current record of 39 wins (39-16 in 1995).
Entering the final week of the regular season, Pitt remains in contention for the Big East regular-season title. The Panthers are just a half game back from Louisville, and are a full game behind Connecticut for first place. Pitt holds the tie breaker with both teams, however, if they should finish the regular season in a tie.
Ohio State is 27-21 on the year and 10-11 in Big Ten action. Buckeyes head coach Bob Todd earned his 900th win at Ohio State last weekend in a win over Iowa.
USF currently sits in fifth in the latest Big East standings with a 14-10 league mark. Overall, the Bulls are23-29 entering the week.
