Game preview: FC Tampa Bay hopes to halt four-game winless streak

. Tonight

FC Tampa Bay (1-2-2) vs. Edmonton FC (3-0-2)

When/where: 7; Al Lang Field, St. Petersburg

How to follow: Live stream at; live radio broadcast on 1010-AM.

Promotion: Gates will open at 5:30 p.m., 30 minutes earlier than usual. Beers will be two for one from 5:30 to 6:30.

Last meeting: This is the first meeting. FC Edmonton is a first-year expansion team.

Last time out: Tampa Bay lost 3-1 at home to Carolina on Saturday night, extending the club's winless streak to four games. … Edmonton ended a two-game skid Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Atlanta.

Skinny: Tampa Bay is coming off arguably its most frustrating loss. Making his first professional start, former USF and Countryside GK Jeff Attinella allowed three goals, but coach Ricky Hill called the scores "three of the cheapest goals that I've ever conceded." … Tampa Bay has scored just three goals in five games, tied with Atlanta for fewest in the league despite outshooting opponents 81-55. … Defenders Omar Jarun, Frankie Sanfilippo and JP Rodrigues have played every minute of each game (450 minutes). … M Pascal Millien, F Mike Ambersley and M Takuya Yamada are tied for the team lead with two points apiece. … Defender Andres Arango is questionable for tonight (ankle sprain).

  2. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer


    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
