Update: 11:30 a.m: The Virginia baseball team will be ranked No. 8 in the country when Pitt comes to visit this weekend, as the Cavaliers dropped from No. 3 in the latest D1Baseball.com Top 25 poll.
The Panthers won’t be trembling in facing a top 10 foe, though. Pitt took two of three against then-No. 5 Louisville April 2-3 and swept then-No. 20 Clemson in a doubleheader March 25.
Overall, Pitt has won eight of its last 10 games. The Panthers will visit Kent State for a mid-week game Tuesday before making the trip to Charlottesville for three games starting Saturday.
