Wednesday will be game three of a three games series between the Seattle Mariners and the Houston Astros.
Both of these American League West teams are to the that one simple loss could eliminate them from the Wild Card race.
After taking the series opener Monday, the Mariners will have James Paxton on the mound while Houston will send Doug Fister out to the hill.
The Houston Astros looked like they were going to be able to make a push for the second Wild Card spot in the American League, but the tank appears to have run dry as they have dropped 5 of their last 10 games.
The Astros may still mathematically have a chance, but they will need a lot of help and losing another game this season is not an option.
Doug Fister will take the mound looking for his 13th win of the season Wednesday night against Seattle.
Through 179 innings of ball, he has a 4.42 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP. Fister has a 1-4 record in his previous 7 starts and has an ERA of 7.36.
He has given up 27 runs off of 48 hits in 33 innings. During his last start against the Angels last Friday, Fister gave up 5 hits in as many innings that led to 2 runs. As a team, the Astros are batting .246 and averaging 4.5 runs pergame.
While the Seattle Mariners also have only won 5 of their last 10, winning the series opener gives them a slight advantage over the Astros in the Wild Card race.
They are still 2 games behind the Baltimore Orioles for the second AL Wild Card spot and can not afford to lose a game. After Wednesday night’s matchup they will play their last four of the season against the Oakland Athletics.
James Paxton will be on the mound for the Mariners on Wednesday.
Throughout 116 innings of work, he has a 5-7 record with a 3.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. His ERA is only 3.38 during his previous 7 starts.
In his last outing against the Minnesota Twins, Paxton only gave up one run on five hits through seven innings.
He will need as much run support as he can get Wednesday night from the Mariners who are batting .258 as a team and averaging 4.71 runs per game.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Seattle is 4-1 during Paxton’s last 5 starts in the third game of a series.
- The Mariners are 8-1 throughout their last 9 games against a right handed starter.
- The Mariners are 10-2 in their last 12 against the American League West.
- Houston is 0-5 in Fister’s last five starts against the American League West.
Free Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Fister hasn’t been dependable at home this year with a 3-6 record and 4.22 ERA. Paxton has better numbers on the road and I think he will get the run support he needs to come away with the win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML and game total over 8.5
This game should be a duel in the batter’s box and both teams should be able to put some runs on the board. The Seattle bats will be too much for Houston and there hopes of a Wild Card will be over after Wednesday night.
