Key to the Game: Work over Harris- In eight games (one start) against the Bees this season, Revolution starter Tyrelle Harris has held the Bees to a .229 batting average and has produced an ERA of 2.09 in 12.1 innings (with 19 strikeouts as well). The Bees will need to put up better numbers tonight against Harris if they hope to even this three-game set with the Revolution.
