Rockies Open Season Tonight in Houston

The Colorado Rockies are set to open the 2012 season against the Astros tonight in Houston (5pm MT, Root Sports). Right-handed pitcher Jeremy Guthrie will get the opening-night start. After the three-game weekend series in Houston, the Rockies will make their way to Coors Field for the home opener against San Francisco on Monday (4/9) at 2:10pm.

The Rockies’ pitching — including a season-opening rotation that’s three parts fresh-faced youth, one part vet in his prime and one part ageless wonder — will play the biggest role in determining the club’s 2012 fortunes. But the Rockies also are high on the guys with the bats.

The Rockies’ acquisition of shortstop Marco Scutaro, right fielder Michael Cuddyer and catcher Ramon Hernandez, and the Spring Training breakouts of three young players, could provide depth throughout the batting order that can make Colorado a force in the National League West.

Single-game tickets are no longer available for the home opener on Monday, but can be purchased for the final two games of the opening series against the Giants on Wednesday (4/11) and Thursday (4/12). For Rockies ticket info call (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
