Round Rock's first trip to the Alamo City follows shortly thereafter on May 26. The two foes meet twice more in 2020, July 20-23 in San Antonio and September 4-7 in Round Rock, the final series of the season.
The Texas Rangers' Triple-A affiliate, the Nashville Sounds, visit Dell Diamond twice in 2020, first for a five-game battle from June 3-7 then again for a quick, three-game set from July 24-26.
The new-look Las Vegas Aviators (Oakland Athletics affiliate) make their inaugural trip to Round Rock on June 17, then the E-Train hosts the Salt Lake Bees (Los Angeles Angles affiliate) beginning on June 20. Other Pacific Conference teams to visit Dell Diamond in 2020 include the El Paso Chihuahuas (San Diego Padres affiliate) from August 5-7 and the Albuquerque Isotopes (Colorado Rockies affiliate) from August 8-11.
For the first time in three seasons, the Express will be home on the Fourth of July as the Oklahoma City Dodgers (Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate) come to town for four-game set beginning on Independence Day.
Following the Triple-A All-Star break from July 13-15, the Express open the second half of the season with a four-game series against the Cubs from July 16-19. Wichita and Oklahoma City later return to the Sports Capital of Texas for a seven-game homestand from August 17-23.
