Astros, Rangers to travel to Dallas instead of Houston

HOUSTON — The Houston Astros and Texas Rangers won’t travel to Houston as planned after their games Sunday in California because of torrential floodwaters that have engulfed the city during Tropical Storm Harvey.

The Rangers had been scheduled to head to Houston after playing Oakland to await the start of a series with the Astros beginning Tuesday. Instead, they’ll return to Dallas to await word on the status of their three-game series.

The Astros are in Anaheim and also will fly to Dallas while a decision is made on the series.

“We have been in continuous contact with the Astros and Major League Baseball regarding travel tonight and the status of this week’s series,” Rangers president and general manager Jon Daniels said. “We will continue to talk throughout the day to get updates on the situation.”
