The Houston Astros are looking like the main challengers to the Dodgers for the World Series crown, but the Mariners have had a sneaky good season and will not make things easy on the visitors this Wednesday when the two teams meet up at T-Mobile Park for this AL West showdown.
The Astros did lose the first game of this series by a score of 11-8 as the pitching failed them in what ended up being a pretty exciting game for the neutral viewers, but the Astros won’t want that to happen again, as their lead atop the division is not insurmountable.
Houston has awesome pitching which will only get better as they get more and more healthy, but they lean on their batting lineup in a big way, as they have possibly the best batting unit in the entire league.
Jake Odorizzi will get the call to the mound this Wednesday and he has been decent so far this season with a 3-5 record and a 4.23 ERA and his numbers against Seattle are also pretty good, so he may be able to put the Astros in a position to win in this one.
The Seattle Mariners really have come out of nowhere, as nobody really thought much of them during this past offseason, but with every passing win more and more people become believers in what could end up being the Cinderella story of the 2021 MLB season.
One of the most surprising parts of this team is no doubt the batting lineup who has come up clutch this year with guys like Mitch Haniger, Ty France and club legend Kyle Seager all producing at high levels.
Yusei Kikuchi is the projected starter for this contest and he has managed to go 6-5 with a 3.95 ERA this season and he has been able to hold the Astros to under a .200 average which is something that not many MLB pitchers can say considering the sheer power on the other side of the ball.

Free Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
The Mariners come into this game on a nice winning streak, but I think that ends here on Wednesday, as the Astros just have too much power in this batting lineup and I think Jake Odorizzi can put this team in a position to win.
There might be a slight discrepancy in terms of the starting pitching here, but given where these teams are at we are getting well compensated for that with the Astros coming in here as just slight road favorites.
