The Bees: Craig Maddox enters tonight’s matchup with the longest road hitting streak in the Atlantic League this season. The left-handed hitter has picked up a hit in 19 straight road games and is hitting .346 (27-78) with four runs scored during the streak.
The Opposition: Michael Rockett has been one of the hottest hitters in the league since the calendar flipped to August. The 29-year-old is hitting .515 (17-33) with six extra-base hits, ten RBIs and nine runs scored in nine August games and is working on a six-game hitting streak.
New Britain- RHP Nate Roe (1-0, 6.18) | York- LHP Frank Gailey (4-2, 3.14)
Key to the Game: Get to Gailey- The last time the Bees faced Frank Gailey, the left-hander handcuffed New Britain for five innings, allowing no runs while striking out six despite walking four batters. The Bees will need to do a better job of taking advantage of those extra baserunners if they are to get to Gailey this time around.
