Hinch was very happy with the response of his players, who did not hesitate to meet the people to demonstrate their support.

Crossing home plate he pointed to his Houston Strong patch that the team will wear on their chests the remainder of the season. Aoki, traded by the Astros to Toronto at the non-waiver deadline and released by the Blue Jays on Aug. 29, will wear No. 11.

Jose Altuve (3-for-4, three runs) and Josh Reddick (3-for-5, two RBIs) added three-hit games for the Astros, who played their first game at Minute Maid Park since Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Gulf Coast last weekend.

Another leading Houston sports figure, J.J. Watt of the National Football League's Texans, said he has raised more than $15 million online after he had originally set a goal of $200,000. That means more than anything.

Matt Corbett, 34, a hedge fund analyst who became a minor Twitter sensation with his informative posts during the storm, said he spent the morning before the game volunteering to help with flood-damaged homes. Computers and charging stations are available for use, and a barber provided haircuts and shaves Friday.

Morton surrendered a two-run home run to Mets first baseman Dominic Smith in the fourth inning and, trailing 10-2 entering the seventh, New York pulled to within three runs when Wilmer Flores capped a five-run frame with a grand slam off Astros right-hander Will Harris. "It is our duty as human being to bring a smile to someone now". "There's certainly an argument that I respect that everything should stop, but the only way to rebuild is to start it, and part of the rebuild process is Houston Astros baseball". "People are going to need our help a month from now, six months from now, maybe a year from now, to help rebuild this city".

Goeyns needed five days to trek several miles to the convention center after her house was flooded, and lacked food, water and medication for several days. But it doesn't make the problem go away.

"I thought his delivery was good", Collins said.

"I think what people probably want right now is normalcy". Sometimes, it is at the financial level, in other cases, it is their time and their energy.

James Cates, a retired iron worker, would have preferred the games not be played.

Astros: SS Carlos Correa is expected to be activated from the DL on Sunday.

"If the Texans didn't play (a preseason game), it's the same reason", Cates said.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner stopped by the convention center Friday afternoon, and said he has never been as proud of his city as he is now.

Rather than return to Minute Maid Park as scheduled three days later, the team moved three "home" games to St. Petersburg, Florida, to relieve the burden on police and fire departments.

"It's going to be emotional (Saturday). It's an important time for our community", Astros Manager A.J. Hinch said.
