Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
This is good series between 2 of the top teams in the American League West. Seattle is trying to gain ground on Houston, while the Astros want to widen the gap.
Houston is the better team here and I feel they will take care of business in this one. I do not feel that great with the Mariners here.
I look for Urquidy to pitch well and for the Astros to hit around Anderson.
Give me the Astros straight up.
