Miami Opens Four-Game Homestand Wednesday


• Following a four-game road swing, the Miami Hurricanes return home to host the Jacksonville Dolphins Wednesday.

• The Hurricanes lead the all-time series over the Dolphins, 82-18. The two sides last met in the 2011 Gainesville Regional.

• Miami has posted a 31-9 (.775) record in midweeks under its fifth-year skipper Gino DiMare, including a 2-1 mark in 2023.

• Right-handed pitcher Alejandro Torres is set to make his second career start, opposing Jacksonville righty Richard Long.

• In his first start against Stetson on Feb. 21, Torres struck out a career-high seven over a career-long three scoreless frames.


• The Canes closed out their four-game road swing after their annual rivalry series with the Florida Gators.

• After its lone midweek loss of the season, Miami took a game at then-No. 6 Florida.

• The Hurricanes stormed back from a five-run deficit to win, 14-6, Saturday by scoring 13 unanswered tallies over the final four frames.

• Freshman Blake Cyr smashed two home runs and plated seven RBI, while sophomore Renzo Gonzalez delivered the eventual game-winning shot in the eighth.


• As of March 7, the Hurricanes rank fourth nationally with 29 home runs, trailing only Florida (35), South Carolina (32) and Wake Forest (31).

• Miami has circled the bases in 11 of 12 games, totaling nine multi-homer performances along the way.

• The Hurricanes are on pace for 132 homers during the regular season, which would be the second-most by a Miami team in a single season.

• Eleven different Hurricanes have left the yard, with junior Yohandy Morales and freshman Blake Cyr blasting a co-team best five round-trippers.
