The Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros face off on Tuesday in an American League West MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. When these two teams faced off on Monday it was the Astros that secured the 3-0 victory.
The Astros come into this game with a 12-11 record overall but they had lost two games in a row before winning on Monday. Over the last three games, the Astros have only scored six runs total, and with as much talent as the offense has it’s been shocking how bad they have been at times. Kyle Tucker has been the top offensive player hitting four home runs and driving in 15 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Seattle Mariners who also sit with a 12-11 record overall but in two of the last three games they have scored one run or less. Overall this season the Mariners offense has been good averaging 4.44 runs per game, and they need to get the offense rolling again in this game. Ty France has been the top player hitting five home runs and driving in 21 RBIs.
Getting the start for the Mariners will be Chris Flexen who sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 3.38. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays he went 6.2 innings giving up six hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Astros is Cristian Javier who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.35. In 13.1 innings this year he has given up two runs.
The Astros are 1-4 in their last five home games. The Astros are 1-6 in their last seven games against a right-handed starter. The under is 4-0 in Flexen’s last four road starts. The under is 5-1 in Flexen’s last six starts following a team loss in their previous games.
The Mariners' cold bats are going to continue in this game. Javier has given up only two runs total this year, and the Mariners are going to struggle to score runs here. The Astros only needed three runs to get the job done on Monday, and they won’t need anymore here to secure the win,. Back the Astros on the money line.
