It’s been a very up and down first half for the AL West rivals.
Seattle and Houston both look to not only pick up important games for the division, but also for what could prove to be pivotal in the Wild Card race.
The Mariners once held a commanding lead in the AL West, but have since faded back to the pack.
Seattle sits in 3rd place, 9.5 games back from first place Texas, who has taken off.
Seattle’s latest run over the past couple weeks has them back over the .500 mark, which is big for their mentality and their decision in the coming month.
Seattle has climbed to within 2.5 games of a Wild Card spot as they look to take down one of the teams they’ll likely be chasing for one of the two spots.
The Mariners will send out Wade LeBlanc, who has put together back to back solid outings since being acquired from Toronto.
This Seattle rotation had struggled, which had led to their downfall over a 2 month span. Seeing LeBlanc turn in good outings has to be an encouraging sign for this rotation.
In three career appearances against the Astros, he’s posted a 1.66 ERA.
The Astros were the complete opposite of their opponents here.
Houston was predicted by many to be World Series winners in the preseason, but started with the worst record in the AL after a month of the season.
However, what worked for them last year came back as they found their groove. While this team sits just 0.5 game out of the Wild Card, they are still thinking division right now.
They have weathered the Rangers hot streak and sits 7.5 back, which is very doing for this team.
Houston sends out Mike Fiers, who is a big part of this turn around.
Over his last 4 starts, Fiers is 3-0 with a 1.57 ERA.
In his last start, he held down the White Sox through 6.0 innings, allowing 0 runs.
