The Houston Astros are caliente as the calendar flips towards the first official weekend in summer and look as though they will face minimal challenge in the AL West, commanding a 10+ game lead in the division.
Perhaps the challengers to them will be the Seattle Mariners, a team they square-off against on Saturday in the middle-game of a three game series that is perhaps a little more crucial for Seattle than Houston.
Lance McCullers is slated to come off the DL on Saturday, a welcome sight for Houston fans.
The young gun has compiled a 6-1 record on the season with a 2.58 ERA and looks to continue his surge towards the All-Star game despite missing recent time sidelined by injury.
His efforts may be aided by Houston’s potent offense against an uncertain starter for Seattle, and if the Astros are able to get a hot start out of the gates against a spot starter, expect McCullers to get back into a groove just fine.
As the Astros are hot so are the Seattle Mariners, especially in their home confines of Safeco Field.
While they struggle on the road to the tune of a 14-24 record, the Mariners have given their home fans plenty to celebrate of late, especially after a nice sweep over the Detroit Tigers.
With Christian Bergman pushed to AAA to make room for Andrew Moore, the Mariners are scrambling to put together a rotation that has been plagued by injury.
This may mean throwing Sam Gaviglio to the hill, and the young pitcher is 3-1 on the year with a 3.43 ERA.
While spot starters are spot starters for a reason, this is no reason to doubt the Mariners, who have consistently found a way to win at home despite unfavorable odds.
Will their home-cooking work come Saturday?

Free Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
The temptations are strong to take Houston in this Saturday night matchup, especially with uncertainty surrounding who will exactly get the start for Seattle.
However, for some reason Seattle has some magic working at home and I see the Mariners putting on a show against a normally dominance McCullers, who may be limited in his first start off the DL.
I’ll take Seattle and the OVER in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Number
Uncertainty surrounding pitching doesn’t generally speak towards low-scoring games.
Especially with McCullers coming off the DL and potentially restricted in terms of pitches and innings, look for this game to be higher-scoring than one would expect a game in which the Houston starter normally finds himself in.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Seattle 6 – Houston 5
