LEADING OFF: Astros play 'home' game, KC nears futility mark

LEADING OFF: Astros play 'home' game, KC nears futility mark

The Rangers and Astros were supposed to play a three-game series in Houston starting Tuesday, but will now play those games at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

With Houston now dealing with devastating flooding from Hurricane Harvey, the Astros had proposed playing this week's series in Arlington and moving the September 25-27 series, which is scheduled to be played in Texas, to Houston.

Despite a published report that indicated a decision on the Mets series was final, Ryan stopped short of announcing the Astros' plans past the Rangers series.

Major League Baseball officials have inquired about the availability of the Trop as a neutral-site venue for the three-game series, which is slated to start Tuesday, and the Rays have said they are ready to help if needed.

Coming off a series win at Los Angeles against the Angels, the Astros look to bring that momentum into the next series when they host the Texas Rangers in Tampa Bay on Tropicana field. They wanted all 6 of our games at their park. Plus, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels suggested it would have been unfair to fans with tickets to the September series.

Whole Foods is now available on Google Express , but it seems unlikely that will continue to be the case for very long. This includes Walmart's " easy reorder " feature which helps you repurchase products that you buy regularly.

The teams put baseball first and failed to compromise, so MLB moved the series to Florida. "So we felt like getting out of Texas and going to a neutral site was in the best interest of our players and in the best interests for the integrity of the schedule this year". The Owls are sharing facilities on the TCU campus and have a week off before they play again, a road game at UTEP. "We had agreed to play the series no matter the place that the Astros and major league baseball were to choose, including Arlington". The Astros' three-game weekend series this Friday through Sunday against the Mets might also be hosted by the Rays. Now, all ticket, concessions and parking revenue from the three-game set will be donated to Harvey relief efforts.

The game was originally scheduled for NRG Stadium, which is not damaged as yet, but there is severe flooding nearby. Both teams had an off day Monday.

In 2008, Hurricane Ike forced the Astros to shift a pair of games against the Cubs from Houston to Miller Park in Milwaukee. Astros owner and chairman Jim Crane, the Astros ownership group, and the Astros Foundation have pledged to donate $4 million to nonprofit organizations overseeing relief efforts. The Astros would be designated the home team in Arlington this week.

St. Petersburg's Tropicana Field is hosting the series that started on Tuesday night.
