#LEADOFF
>> Coastal Division rivals Georgia Tech and Duke square off in Atlanta this weekend in a key ACC series for two teams looking to keep pace with the leaders. The entire series can be seen live on ESPN3.

>> The Yellow Jackets have revenge on their mind after the Blue Devils won last year’s series in Durham — Duke’s first win in the series since 2009.

>> Tech is fourth in the ACC with a .278 team average, boasting a balanced attack with six players hitting .290+ and already 39 sacrifice bunts or flies in 29 games – well more than half of last year’s total of 62 in 64 games.

>> The Jackets have had a knack for playing close ball games with 15 of the 29 being decided by two runs or less and five in extra innings (2-3). Tech is 5-4 in one-run games and its average margin of defeat in its 13 losses is just 2.5 runs.

>> Senior 2B Mott Hyde owns a seven-game hitting streak and is hitting .400 (12-for-30) over the streak with four RBI and has walked four times.
