Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey continues to pound the Houston and Texas coastline Monday, leaving in doubt when the city will have time to dry out and rebuild. While the city is focused on saving lives, the city's baseball team has to turn its focus to finishing the season.

The team announced on Monday that the Astros will place both the series against the Texas Rangers and the possibly the New York Mets at Tropicana Field.

The Mets series hasn't been confirmed but is likely with tropical storm Harvey isn't likely to move out of the city at the earliest until Wednesday. It isn't likely that roadways will be safe enough to travel on Friday.

The first two games of the series will have a 6:10 p.m. CT start time, with Thursday's game starting at 12:10 p.m. CT. All three games will broadcast on AT&T SportsNet Southwest and on the radio on Sportstalk 790. Wednesday's game will broadcast nationally on ESPN.
