Site: Johnny Unitas Stadium

Time: 7

TV/Radio: Ch. 2 tape delay, 11:35 p.m./WJFK (1300 AM) live

Outlook: This will be the first game for the Bayhawks since June 19 after two postponements of a match against Long Island. They will be seeking to avenge a 14-12 defeat to the Rattlers on June 13 that broke their eight-game winning streak in the series. Tillman Johnson (St. Mary's) made his Major Lacrosse League debut in that game with 22 saves in a sparkling performance, and Bayhawks rookie Mike Levin made 20 stops. Johnson is saving 64 percent of opponents' shots and allowing 13.3 goals a game. Levin is at 51.6 percent and 14.9 goals, respectively. Rochester lost to Philadelphia in its most recent game, 19-15. The Powell brothers, Ryan (20 goals, 11 assists) and Casey (12 goals, 13 assists) paced the Rattlers offense. Mark Millon (28 points) and player-coach Gary Gait (27) are the Bayhawks' leaders on attack. Bayhawks midfielder Kip Fulks will be activated for the game after recovering from a hamstring injury. The Bayhawks lead the series 10-2.
