The Opposition: Over his last five games, Mike McDade is hitting .438 (7-16) with a home run, four RBIs, and three runs scored, including picking up two hits and double last night against the Bees.
New Britain- RHP Kyle Simon (6-5, 2.87) | Lancaster- LHP Luis Gonzalez (1-0, 1.12)
Key to the Game – Simon Says: In his September 2nd start, which was his first since returning from an injury that kept him out nearly a month, Simon picked up right where he left off. The right-hander allowed just one hit in three scoreless innings of work before being lifted due to a pitch count. With that successful tuneup under his belt, look for Simon to pitch deeper into his start tonight vs. Lancaster.
