Astros to return to Houston for Mets series


    Katie Churchwell holds up a sign during the first inning of a baseball game between the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers on Aug. 29 in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Astros moved their three-game home series against the Rangers to St. Petersburg because of unsafe conditions from Hurricane Harvey.

HOUSTON >> The Houston Astros are coming home and will open a three-game series against the New York Mets on Sept. 2.

The Astros had to relocate their series against the Texas Rangers this week to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, because of catastrophic flooding in the area in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The Astros will return to Houston on Aug. 31 after their game against the Rangers.

Astros president Reid Ryan said: “We hope that these games can serve as a welcome distraction for our city that is going through a very difficult time. We hope that we can put smiles on some faces.”

The Mets series was scheduled to begin on Sept. 1, but instead a Sept. 2 doubleheader is planned and the finale on Sept. 3.
