Nathan Kirby, the likely Saturday starter, is an All-American. Artie Lewicki, No. 2 in the rotation, is two years removed from Tommy John surgery and is throwing as hard as he's ever thrown, posting 95 mph on the radar gun recently. Brandon Waddell, the No. 3, was last year's No. 1 — for a 50-win team. Throw in a bullpen highlighted by Nick Howard, a righty one save away from setting the ACC single-season mark, and you got a lethal staff.
