The Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. On Tuesday it was the Astros that secured the 4-1 victory. 

The Astros come into this game with a 36-20 record and it’s been the pitching that they have leaned on all year to have success. The Astros offense is actually ranked 21st in the MLB in terms of runs scored per game. The pitching however has been strong giving up only 3.269 runs per game. Yordan Alvarez has been having a big season hitting 17 home runs and driving in 36 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Mariners who sit with a 25-31 record overall and they had won two games in a row before losing on Tuesday. The Mariners offense has had issues scoring all season averaging only 4.11 runs per game. The pitching hasn’t been much better, but if they want to find success in this game, they are going to need the offense to be better here.

Marco Gonzales is on the mound for the Mariners and he sits with a 3-6 record and an ERA of 3.59. 

On the mound for the Astros is Jose Urquidy and he sits with a 5-2 record and an ERA of 4.76. In his last start against the Royals, he went six innings, giving up five hits and three runs. 

The Mariners are 1-5 in their last six games played on Wednesday. The over is 4-0-2 in Urquidy’s last six games played on Wednesday. The under is 5-0-1 in Gilbert’s last six starts on Wednesday. 

The Mariners have been inconsistent so far this season, but they will find a way to pick up a victory here. Urquidy’s record might look decent, but he has an ERA near five, and I expect that the Mariners bats will find a way to get going here. Look for the Astros bats to be cold again in this game, and the Mariners will do enough to secure a victory. Back the Mariners.
