The Astros enter this Wednesday night matchup with an 11-7 record that pegs them 2nd in the AL West. As aforementioned, Houston is but 2 ½ games behind the Angels. Considering that Houston is the reigning champion, you can bet that they’ll be looking to jump to an early lead in the division. This evening’s matchup will mark Game 3 of this 4-game series. The Mariners managed to pull off the upset in Game 1 handing the Astros a 2-1 deficit. Afterwards, Houston bounced back in Game 2 by posting a 4-1 victory. Now, the Astros look to take the lead in the series and make some headway into catching Los Angeles. To help get the job done, Houston will be sending Gerrit Cole to the mound. The right-handed pitcher has a 1-0 record on the year. Additionally, Cole comes in with an eye-catching 1.29 ERA and an impressive 0.67 WHIP. With those numbers in mind, it’s clear Houston is the rightful favorite this evening.
Players to Watch: Carlos Correa (2 HR, 12 RBI, .288 BA), Josh Reddic (3 HR, 8 RBI, .273 BA) and Max Stassi (1 HR, 6 RBI, .269 BA).
The Mariners swim into this AL West matchup with a 9-6 record that ranks them 3rd in the AL West. Right now the Mariners are only 3-games behind Los Angeles. From what we’ve seen out of Seattle this season, there’s no question the Mariners can give the Angels a bit of a hard time. However, it’s been 15-years since Seattle has qualified for the postseason. So getting excited about their early-season success might be unwarranted. To help topple the Astros this evening, Seattle will be starting Mike Leake. Leake is 2-0 on the year with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Robinson Cano (1 HR, 5 RBI, .333 BA), Jean Segura (1 HR, 7 RBI, .302 BA), and Kyle Seager (3 HR, 11 RBI, .268 BA).
