LeBlanc was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start but got the no-decision as Seattle would later go on to beat the Texas Rangers 4-3.
He went 6.1 innings giving up just two hits and one earned run while he struck out four and walked one.
In 113.1 innings of work this season, the lefty owns a mediocre 7.07 K/9, a solid 1.83 BB/9, a slightly high 1.35 HR/9, and a solid 76.7% LOB%.
The end-result is a solid 3.81 ERA and a slightly higher 4.19 FIP.
Seattle has played sub-par baseball in the past week only winning two of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .246/.289/.419 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 26 RBI.
Morton pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start but got the no-decision in a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants.
He went seven innings giving up just three hits, one earned run, and one home run while he struck out eight and walked three.
In 131.1 innings of work this season, the veteran owns an elite strikeout (11.44 K/9) to walk rate (3.63 BB/9) while he has been solid at limiting the long ball (0.96 HR/9) and stranding base runners (82.7% LOB%).
The end-result is an excellent 2.81 ERA and a higher 3.46 FIP.
Houston has played solid baseball in the past week winning four of their five contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .216/.316/.438 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Astros -1.5 & OVER 7.5 Runs
Houston roughed up LeBlanc not too long ago and I expect more of the same as Houston hits better against lefties.
Morton’s got the win both times he’s faced Seattle this year, and both times they covered the run line, back the home squad in this one.
