As many of you know, Georgia Tech will host Miami in an important three-game ACC series at Russ Chandler Stadium, beginning Friday.
Tech needs to win this series. It has stumbled a bit recently, dropping three of its past five series, including to relative lightweights Virginia Tech and N.C. State.
If the Yellow Jackets (39-9, 17-7) can sweep the series against the Hurricanes (36-11, 18-6) , it could be on top of the ACC by Monday if North Carolina can take care of business against co-leader Virginia (40-9, 18-6).
Georgia Tech RHP Deck McGuire (6-3, 3.05 ERA) vs. Miami LHP Chris Hernandez (7-2, 3.04)
Georgia Tech RHP Mark Pope (7-0, 3.73 ERA) vs. Miami RHP Jason Santana (5-2, 4.83)
Georgia Tech LHP Jed Bradley (8-2, 3.75 ERA) vs. Miami RHP David Gutierrez (5-0, 3.86)
