The Mariners smashed back-to-back runs against Justin Verlander in their series opener and they had a 7-8 record. However, they were unable to maintain their lead as they gave up eight runs to the Astros. Seattle had to rotate several pitchers but they were still unable to do well from the defensive end. The Mariners will turn in their Ace Luis Castillo to the mound as their starter in this game. Castillo rocked the Toronto Blue Jays in their last game and he is all set to get some early Ks against the Astros in this game.
Players to watch: T. France 1B (GP 3, AB 15, R 1, H 5, 2B 1, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 2, TB 6, BB 0, SO 2, SB 0, AVG 0.333, OBP 0.333, SLG 0.4, OPS 0.733, WAR 0), M. Haniger RF (GP 3, AB 13, R 1, H 3, 2B 1, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 0, TB 4, BB 0, SO 2, SB 0, AVG 0.231, OBP 0.231, SLG 0.308, OPS 0.538, WAR 0).
The Houston Astros almost lost their first game but they were saved with a three-run walk-off home run with just one hitter on the plate. Yordan Alvarez was the hero of the day who was the last man standing at the plate. Alvarez smashed a three-run homer that sent the Mariners in disbelief. Houston will turn in Framber Valdez to the mound as their starter in this game. Valdez has been a decent pitcher but the Mariners are not easy to defeat. Valdez will still need plenty of support from the plate in this game.
Players to watch: Y. Alvarez DH (GP 1, AB 5, R 2, H 3, 2B 1, 3B 0, HR 1, RBI 5, TB 7, BB 0, SO 0, SB 0, AVG 0.6, OBP 0.6, SLG 1.4, OPS 2, WAR 0), J. Pena SS (GP 1, AB 5, R 1, H 1, 2B 0, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 0, TB 1, BB 0, SO 1, SB 0, AVG 0.2, OBP 0.2, SLG 0.2, OPS 0.4, WAR 0).
