The opponent: Regardless of this game's outcome, Baltimore (6-16-6, 24 points) will finish last in the 12-team USSF Division 2.

Previous meeting: The teams met April 16, the Rowdies' inaugural game. Tampa Bay won 1-0 on Aaron King's goal in the 66th minute.

What's at stake: For the Rowdies (6-12-11, 29 points), ending this season on a high note. Since starting 5-1-3, Tampa Bay has won one game and is winless in its past 11.
