The Houston pitching staff has a 2.81 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a .220 opponent batting average this season. The Astros offense has scored 190 runs with a .232 batting average and a .309 on base percentage. Yordan Alvarez is batting .246 with 12 home runs and 25 RBI’s for the Astros this season. The projected starter for Houston is Justin Verlander, who is 6-1 with a 1.22 ERA and a 0.72 WHIP over 51.2 innings pitched this season.
The Seattle Mariners are 18-27 this season and have lost six of their last seven games. Seattle is coming off of a series loss against Oakland, where they lost two out of the three games played in the series. The Seattle pitching staff has a 4.35 ERA, a 1.32 WHIP, and a .250 opponent batting average. The Mariners offense has scored 178 runs with a .234 batting average and a .315 on base percentage this year. Ty France is batting .331 with six home runs and 31 RBI’s for the Astros this season. The projected starter for Seattle is Chris Flexen, who is 1-6 with a 4.98 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP over 43.1 innings pitched this season.
Houston is 21-5 in their last 26 games on grass and 9-1 in their last 10 games against the AL West. The under is 4-1 in Houston’s last 5 Friday games. Seattle is 16-7 in their last 23 Friday games and 7-21 in their last 28 games. The over is 6-1 in Seattle’s last 7 games. Houston is 40-14 in these two teams last 54 head to head meetings.
Houston has been very good this season and has been led by Verlander, who has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. Verlander has gone three straight starts without allowing a run. For Seattle, Flexen has allowed 14 runs in his last three starts. I like Houston to win by at least two here.
