The Opposition: Michael Rockett, a former 13th round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers in 2009, has been scorching hot of late, hitting .500 (8-19) with three RBIs and five runs scored over his last five games (including 2-4 with two runs last night vs. the Bees).

Key to the Game – Do It Again The Bees faced off against Tony Pena just last week and put up seven runs on five hits in the Bees’ 7-3 win over the Revolution on August 4. The Bees will try to pounce early on Pena again as they look to square the series at a game apiece in this four-game series.
