The Astros and Mariners both look like they will be involved in a crowded AL West race this season.
The two teams continue their weekday series on Tuesday night from Safeco Field.
Houston has a lot of pressure and expectations behind them this season. Picked by many to win the World Series, the Astros look to get back to the playoffs, where they were just 2 innings away from eliminating the eventual champs.
The Astros have came out of the gates very soft, as they sit at just 6-13. The good news for them is that nobody has ran away with the West to build a giant gap to come back from. Houston has been exceptionally bad on the road, going just 2-7 as their pitching has let them down on many occasions.
One pitcher that has not let them down in the past is Tuesday’s starter Dallas Keuchel. The southpaw is 2-2 on the season with an ERA of 3.71. He’s gone just 1-2 on the road though and was knocked around in his last start in Texas, giving up 13 hits in 6.0 innings of work while conceding 6 runs. Keuchel has been a dominant home pitcher in the past, but the road has given him some troubles at times.
Seattle has gotten out of the gates as a middle of the pack, .500 team and right now, that’s okay with them. They completely re did their roster and built around Nelson Cruz and Robinson Cano and while it has worked sometimes this season, other times this team has looked rather weak in both the offensive and defensive categories.
Safeco Field has been far from a breath of fresh air too. The offense has sputtered there and the pitching has been extremely inconsistent.
One guy they have to get going is Nathan Karns. The RH is just 1-1 on the season, but has an inflated ERA of 5.28. Karns comes in off a shaky outing in Cleveland where he allowed 5 runs in just 5.1 innings of work. Pitch count has been his biggest flaw as he has failed to get past the 5th inning in all three starts.

The Astros have a huge advantage here with Keuchel on the hill.
Seattle scores under 2 runs per home game and with Keuchel needing a bounce back, look for him to really settle in early on Tuesday.
