The Midland RockHounds will host the Corpus Christi hooks in the home opener at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Momentum Bank Ballpark.

Teams will play six games in five days with a doubleheader on Saturday as the Texas League has Easter Sunday off.

The RockHounds pulled off a 2-1 streak in Amarillo as both wins over the Sod Poodles were high scoring (11-9 on Friday and 12-10 on Sunday).

It’s early days, but the RockHounds are showing they can bat as five players are batting .429 or better, led by outfielder Michael Guldberg, who has a .600 clip that comes with five runs scored as the team best. Infielder and the No. 3 in the Oakland Athletic organization, Zack Gelof, made a 9-for-16 start with a team-best 1,549 OPS, two homers and eight RBI. Former first-round draft pick and infielder Logan Davidson isn’t far behind with 1,544 OPS, two homers and four RBI.

The Midland Baseball franchise will be celebrating its 50th anniversary throughout the season and fans will be given schedule magnets and 50th anniversary t-shirts for Tuesday’s game.
