It was inevitable that Seattle would regress. They have lost the first three games of this series and four in a row. They have only scored more than three runs once in that stretch. Top hitter Mitchan Haniger might miss this one, that is not going to help them get out of their funk.
At this point, Yusei Kikuchi is into his third season in the Majors but the results seem to always look the same. Last year he limited homers but this season that has gotten away from him. He has already given up more than he did a year ago in half the innings.
Kendall Graveman is looking great at the back of the bullpen. I like him in the role and he should do well though there might not be a ton of leads to protect.
The Astros have won three in a row and six of seven. Their greatest skill might be dealing with adversity. Jose Altuve is back but their pitching continues to be hit hard by injuries.Yuli Gurriel has been one of the best hitters in the Majors in April.
This is just the third start of the season for Luis Garcia, who has also pitched in the bullpen. The starts are nothing to get excited about but he still might get his first MLB win tonight.
The starting pitching has not been great for the Astros so they are asking a lot of their bullpen. They might not have recognizable names back there but most of the guys get the job done.
Free Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
If you like to lean into streak then the Astros are the play here. The same goes for fading Kikuchi. I can get behind both of those strategies.
Houston has the much better lineup top to bottom. They are scoring more than five runs per game and can carry Garcia is need be too.
