A rare ACC series in which Carolina was not involved. We got a free pair of Duke tickets based on our Bulls mini-plan purchase, and they got used to see Virginia, since Carolina goes up to C’ville this year instead of having UVa at home.
Virginia’s one of those quietly terrifying teams that plays a fairly perfect small ball hit-and-run game. Not to mention that they got two complete games from their Friday (Danny Hultzen, the best draft ineligible pitcher in the NCAA this year) and Saturday (some dude I’d never heard of) starters this weekend. And also Duke isn’t very good. More consistent than Carolina this season, but still not very good.
It was very hot and very sunny and UVa can bring their catchers down to the Triangle any time they feel like it.
