Oh what a Friday night in Seattle it’s about to be.
Riding a scorching hot eight-game win streak the Seattle Mariners will play host to the Houston Astros, as the Mariners sit just 1.5 games back of an AL Wild Card spot as of Thursday morning, with a chance to pull within a ½ game should the Blue Jays fall to Toronto on Thursday night.
The Astros, meanwhile, now have a tough road to get to a playoff spot they were predicted to easily secure in 2016 after a surprisingly great 2015 campaign.
They sit 3.5 games back of a playoff spot and will need to put together quite the series against the Mariners to find their way to postseason glory.
Not only will the atmosphere in Safeco Field be electric, so will the King’s Court as Felix Hernandez takes the hill for the Mariners, looking for his twelfth win of the year.
Though he has been up-and-down in 2016 with a 3.58 ERA, Hernandez has a knack for pitching his best in high profile games such as Friday night’s contest against the Astros.
Bolstering Seattle’s chances further on Friday night is an offense that has been lighting the scoreboard up as of late, scoring 18 runs over the Mariners’ three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Last night it was Kyle Seager to the rescue and he will look to continue tearing the ball along with Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz.
On the other side of the field are the Houston Astros, coming off a big win over the Texas Rangers that saw them snap a three game losing streak.
Despite this win, however, the Astros now find themselves on the outside of the playoff picture after a streak that saw them go 2-6 in their past eight.
Fortunately for the Astros Jose Altuve looks to be getting out of his slump and they did flex their offensive muscle in last night’s win over the Rangers.
Collin McHugh gets the start for Houston and has been serviceable in 2016, posting a 10-10 record with a 4.86 ERA.

Free Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Felix Hernandez is going to be the difference in this one.
Though he hasn’t been as spectacular as he has in past years, the King shines under the spotlight and will shine at Safeco Field as the Mariners look to push their win streak to nine.
Look for this to be a close one but one that Seattle comes away with on a late dinger.

They say all good things must come to an end but they are not about to in Seattle on Friday night.
Collin McHugh has been inconsistent and an electric Felix Hernandez will quiet a potentially explosive Houston offense.
Mariners take game one of this series.
