Pitt baseball begins big series against South Florida

Ronald Martinez

First things first - in case you missed it, Pitt beat Akron this week to move to 20-6 on the season.

Pitt's baseball takes on South Florida on the road in their second Big East series of the season. At 3-0 after a sweep over St. John's, the Panthers are tied for first in the conference.

South Florida is 15-14 on the year, but as was pointed out in the Pitt preview, they're 12-4 at home.

Games will be played on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. And if you're interested, you can pay a fee to watch the games through South Florida's website.

Pitt has climbed into the rankings ... albeit a bit slowly. Despite a 20-6 record and having won eight straight games, Pitt is still a fairly modest No. 26 in the polls. That could be due to a fairly weak schedule so far, but with three games against a team slightly above .500, that could help Pitt's credibility a bit more.
