Leake was able to put in a quality start his last outing but got the no-decision in a 6-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
He went 6.2 innings giving up nine hits, three earned runs, and one home run while he struck out five and walked none.
In 140.2 innings of work this season, the veteran owns a low 5.50 K/9, a solid 1.86 BB/9, a slightly high 1.15 HR/9, and a bleak 71.7% LOB%.
The end-result is a mediocre 4.16 ERA and a similar 4.29 FIP.
Seattle has played losing baseball in the past week only winning two of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .247/.288/.409 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.
Cole was decent in his last outing but was tagged with his fourth loss of the season in a 2-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He went five innings giving up six hits and three earned runs while he struck out eight and walked one.
In 146.1 innings of work this season, Cole owns an elite strikeout (12.42 K/9) to walk rate (3.01 BB/9), while he has been solid containing the long ball (0.86 HR/9) and stranding base runners (79.9% LOB%).
The end-result is an excellent 2.64 ERA and a similar 2.76 FIP.
Houston continues to play winning baseball in the past week winning five of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .245/.329/.495 to go with 27 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: Houston handles their business at home against Seattle
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Mariners UNDER Team Total & First 5 Innings UNDER
Cole didn’t have the greatest start to August, but he’ll get a nice pick-me-up at home where he owns a 2.52 ERA to go with a slash line of .169/.250/.308.
I like Houston to cover the run line, but the odds may not be too favorable, so I’ll direct my attention to Cole shutting down Seattle’s lineup as they’ve only averaged 2.60 runs in their last 10 contests against Houston.
