The AL West features two teams opposing each other on this weekend series as the Seattle Mariners head to Houston to take on the Astros.
The two teams sit on opposite sides of the division with Seattle in first and the Astros in last.
The Mariners have been one of the best road teams out of the gate this season.
Seattle holds a 12-4 record at home as they average 5.69 runs per game while conceding just 3.38. They’ll get a look at Dallas Keuchel here, who they roughed up in Seattle a week ago. Cruz, Marte, and Cano all had giant hits early on that didn’t allow Keuchel to settle in. The trio has gotten even hotter since then.
Seattle will send out Nathan Karns here, who opposed Keuchel in that start. Karns got the win going 7.0 innings allowing 2 hits and 0 runs as he was flawless in the outing. Over that span, he struck out 6 as he kept hitters off balanced all night long.
This series is extremely big for the Astros even with it being earlier in this season. The Astros have fallen 7.5 games out already and have nothing working for them.
Houston is just 6-8 at home, a place that they dominated at last year, and their pitching has been a big reason for that. The Astros are conceding 4.29 runs per home game as they don’t have anybody reliable to starters to work with.
Dallas Keuchel, who was unbeaten at home last year and the Cy Young award winner, hasn’t gotten off to anywhere close to the same start as in 2015. Keuchel is has gotten knocked around in back to back decisions by these Mariners and the Twins. Keuchel is 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA this season. He allowed 5 runs against Seattle, but did at least manage to make it through 6 innings of work.

Seattle got to Keuchel last time out, but this has the making to be different.
