There’s another big game in Seattle on Sunday as the Astros and Mariners take the field once again in a pivotal game three of their three game weekend series that has seen the Astros take the first two games
Playoff implications are written all over this game, especially with Seattle hosting Toronto for a huge three game series to start next week off.
Seattle’s impressive winning streak was halted on Friday night and Saturday did not get any better, as James Paxton took a perfect game through the fifth yet didn’t have the chance to secure a win as Seattle’s offense continued to struggle.
They are not out of the playoff picture — especially with that series against Toronto coming up — but need a key win in this game to see their odds increase.
They’ll send Ariel Miranda to the mound, looking to forward the momentum he has gained since joining the Mariners. In fact, Miranda has recorded three consecutive wins and has not surrendered an earned run in his past two appearances.
Though he does have a tendency to give up a few, the past couple games has seen Miranda be dominant against some offensively potent teams in the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels.
Seattle will look to the meat of its order to get going once again on Sunday, with Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, and Kyle Seager all looking for that late-season spark that has helped keep the Mariners tight in the AL Wild Card race.
To say Houston’s win in game one of the series was big would be an understatement.
They absolutely dominated Felix Hernandez and the Mariners in an electric Safeco Field and followed up with a great win in game two, working past a brilliant James Paxton while silencing Seattle’s bats once again.
Doug Fister, the one time Seattle Mariner, gets the start for the Astros and has had a rough go of it as of late, failing to record a win in his past four starts.
During this stretch he has surrendered six or more runs twice. His last win came against the Pittsburgh Pirates on August 22 where he looked masterful as he tossed seven innings of shutout baseball.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Doug Fister is 2-1 against the Mariners in 2016
- Fister has limited the Mariners to just a .200 batting average against him
- Ketel Marte is 3 for 7 against Fister with a double
- James Paxton had a perfect game through five innings last night against the Astros. It ended in the sixth on a single by Teoscar Hernandez
Free Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Ariel Miranda has been great for the Seattle Mariners this year and will look for his 5th win on the year against a potent Astros team.
Fister, meanwhile, will look for his first win since August 22nd and his third over Seattle this year.
I don’t see a lot of runs being scored in this one but do see the Mariners coming away with the win.
