>> Winners of six of its last seven, Georgia Tech heads to Athens Tuesday night for the first of three meetings versus Georgia.

>> The 360th game in the all-time series is set for 7 p.m. at Foley Field and can be seen live on CSS with Matt Stewart and Rusty Ensor.

>> The Yellow Jackets have won six of the last 10 and nine of the last 14 in the series and are 40-31 versus UGA under Danny Hall. Tech is 5-1 in its last six regular-season games at Foley Field.

>> Senior Mott Hyde — who should start his 200th career game on Tuesday — hit a team-best .412 last week. Hyde began the year 1-for-19, but in five games since being held out of the lineup, he’s hitting .409 (9-for-22) with three doubles, a triple and a home run.

>> Junior Thomas Smith and freshman Ryan Peurifoy each own seven-game hitting streaks, while Hyde’s hit streak stands at five.
