The Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. In the first game of the season, the Astros were able to come away with the 3-0 victory. On Tuesday it was much of the same as the Astros were able to win 4-0.
The Seattle Mariners come into this game with a 12-12 record overall and the bats have been ice cold over the last two games. In three of the last four games, the Mariners have scored only one run or less, and in this game if they want a chance the offense is going to need to find a way to get going. The best player for the Mariners has been Ty France and he has hit five home runs and driven in 21 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Astros who sit with a 13-11 record overall and it’s been the pitching in the first two games that has been the difference. Even though they have been winning the offense hasn’t been elite. Over the last four games, they have only scored ten runs total. Yordan Alvarez has been the top player hitting eight home runs and driving in 14 RBIs.
Getting the start for the Mariners is Matt Brash who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 6.88, In his last start against the Marlins he went 2.0 innings, giving up seven hits and six runs.
Getting the start for the Astros is Justin Verlander who sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 1.73. In his last start against the Rangers he went seven innings giving up four hits and one run.
The Mariners are 1-5 in their last six road games. The under is 4-0 in Verlander’s last four starts on grass. The under is 3-0-1 in the Astros last four games played on Wednesday. The over is 4-1 in the Mariners last five games during game 3 of a series.
The Mariners have failed to score in the last two games, and I expect they are going to struggle again to score in this game. In 26 innings so far this year, Verlander has given up only five runs. In Verlander’s last start he went seven innings giving up one run. Back the Astros on the run line.
