>> A pair of surging teams collide Tuesday night in Atlanta as No. 25 Georgia Tech welcomes Georgia with the Yellow Jackets looking to even the teams’ three-game season series.
>> The game marks the 361st in a series that dates back to 1898. Tech hopes to shake off a three-game slide to the Bulldogs, which includes a 1-0 walk-off win by UGA in Athens in March.
>> Tech has won eight of its last nine, took down No. 1 Florida State twice this past weekend in Atlanta and back in the Top 25. The Yellow Jackets are 6-3 versus ranked teams this season and have won six of their past nine against No. 1-ranked clubs.
>> Freshman SS Connor Justus was named the ACC Player of the Week after hitting .471, with two doubles, two homers and a team-best eight RBI. He has played 20-straight error-free games.
>> The Jackets have played 17 straight games of holding the opposition to five runs or less (11-6), extending the longest such streak in 21 years under head coach Danny Hall.
>> Freshman LHP Ben Parr makes his fifth straight midweek start. He is 3-1 with a 1.66 ERA in his four previous midweek starts.
