In the circle: Princeton's staff ERA is 2.53, Penn's is 3.33.
Top pitchers: Alex Peyton (6-4) has thrown a team-high 74 2/3 innings for Princeton, accruing a 1.78 ERA. Alexis Borden (8-7, 1.56) leads Penn in innings, throwing 103 of the team's 199 2/3 frames.

• None of Princeton's four pitchers has thrown more than 36 percent of the team's innings. Penn's Alexis Borden has thrown nearly 52 percent of the team's innings.

• The weekend will return first-year Princeton coach Lisa Sweeney to her first collegiate coaching job after she left her alma mater. Sweeney was an assistant coach at Penn for the last two seasons, helping the Quakers to a South Division title last season.

• The Tigers and Quakers have had only one non-league opponent that each team has played so far. Princeton defeated Villanova 4-1 at '95 Field last week, while Penn lost to Villanova 7-1 in Orlando back on March 2 and 9-0 at Penn Park this Thursday.
• Penn has dominated the series with Princeton of late after the Tigers ran out to a 44-2 series lead. The Quakers have won the last four four-game series against Princeton, taking three of four in 2009, 2010 and 2012 while sweeping Princeton in 2011.
