MIDLAND Collin Theroux came through with a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning as the Midland RockHounds rallied to defeat the Corpus Christi Hooks Saturday at Security Bank Ballpark.

Corpus Christi got off to a hot start once again, scoring four runs in the first two innings thanks to a two-run single from Stephen Wrenn in the first and a two-run double from Granden Goetzman in the second.

Midland answered with a run in the bottom of the third with an RBI single from Dairon Blanco. After a throwing error for the Hooks, the RockHounds added another run thanks to a sacrifice fly from Chase Calabuig.

Ronnie Dawson extended the Corpus Christi lead to 5-2 with an RBI single in the fifth but Midland tied with three runs in the bottom of the frame.

Calabuig drove in two runs with a double while Taylor Motter tied the game with an RBI groundout.

The game stayed scoreless until the 11th inning when Goetzman, who finished the game 3 for 5, hit a single to score runner Bryan De La Cruz.

Midland answered with a sacrifice fly from Kevin Merrell before Theroux came through with his game-winner.

The RockHounds will look to split the series starting at 2 p.m. Sunday from Security Bank Ballpark.
