If someone regrettably gets a minor boo-boo during the opening match-up of a swift two-game slate between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves, the call of “is there a doctor in the house?” will be answered en masse. That’s because it’s Medical Professionals Appreciation Night, which entitles folks in Houston’s medical community to cheaper tickets in the mezzanine and field box IV sections at Minute Maid Park, as well as Astros navy scrub tops for the first 500 purchasers. As for the game, the Braves seemed to be on a similar pace to 2016’s last-place finish in the National League East before they performed with more spunk in mid-April inside their brand-new $622 million SunTrust Park. The Astros will hope to lean on their explosive bats and some home cooking in order to further ATL’s road woes.
7:10 p.m. Tuesday. Also 1:10 p.m. May 10. 501 Crawford. For information, call 713-259-8500 or visit astros.com. $6 to $89.
