HOUSTON — Houston’s game against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday has been moved to Tuesday and will be played as part of a doubleheader because of Hurricane Laura. 

The Astros were supposed to wrap up a four-game series with the Angels on Thursday afternoon. Instead, they will play a doubleheader starting at 3:05 p.m. Tuesday. 

It’s the second doubleheader to be held at Minute Maid Stadium since the venue was built. The first one was in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, when the Astros achieved a twinbill sweep of the Mets on Sept. 2, 2017.

Wednesday’s game, which was scheduled to start at 8:10 p.m. was moved up to 12:10 p.m because of the impending storm. 

Major League Baseball anticipates more schedule changes depending on the storm’s path.
