Houston Astros vs Seattle Mariners Prediction

I’m on the Mariners here. I think that Seattle can find some momentum getting back home and I’m not ready to fully trust the Astros on this win one, lose one streak they’ve been on. Valdez hasn’t been the same ace level pitcher we’ve seen in years past and even when he has been, the Mariners are a team that’s seemed to have his number time and time again. I think Seattle holds some value here so give me the Mariners in this one.
