Rangers-Astros series moved to St. Petersburg

Harvey Flooding Puts Rangers Astros Series in Houston in Limbo MLB Benches clear during Astros win over Rangers
Pammachio Corsino | 29 Agosto, 2017, 14:30

By Sunday morning, more than 24 inches of rain had fallen in Houston, with more continuing to fall, causing catastrophic floods.

"The most important thing is (that) baseball is secondary right now", he said.

The NFL and the Texans will continue to closely monitor the situation in Houston and adjust the team's plans as necessary.

The Associated Press reported earlier Monday that the Astros' three-game home series against the Mets, which starts Friday, also will be played at Tropicana Field.

Once the series with the Mets concludes, they'll be back on the road for another 10-game stretch.

But sources said the Mets-Astros series is likely to be played in Florida and that a formal announcement wasn't made to give the Astros more time to decide if playing at Minute Maid Park will become more feasible in the next few days.

It was thought that the Astros would instead just play the Rangers in Arlington this week, and then a series between to be played in Arlington in September would be flipped to Houston. For safety reasons, they flew into Dallas rather than back to Houston.


While the rest of the National Football League prepares for its final pre-season games, a huge question mark lingers for the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys.

Houston split its first two preseason games, falling to the Carolina Panthers in the opener before beating the New England Patriots at NRG Stadium, the place they won their fifth Super Bowl in February, last week. But the people that make up the Rangers' front office were brought in to win baseball games, and sometimes people get tunnel vision in order to achieve a specific goal.

Oddsmakers have the Texans as 5-point favorites in the Week 1 matchup against the Jaguars.

The Texans are scheduled to open the regular season at NRG Stadium on September 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The NFL will decide if the game will be moved or postponed.

Thursday's game against the Cowboys has been relocated to AT&T Stadium in Arlington. Jill Tolentino, a reporter with the New Yorker who was born in Houston, also tweeted a list of organizations that desperately will be in need of financial help as they attempt to deal with this ongoing humanitarian crisis. The Owls accepted Texas Christian's invitation to share its facilities.

The Rice football team was settling in on TCU's campus in Fort Worth. They've been rivals since interleague play began in 1997 and it deepened when the Astros moved from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013.
