If there is another series more important than the one taking place between the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros early this week I have yet to find it.
With both teams still chasing that final AL Wild Card spot this brief three game series in Houston is huge, with the Mariners able to afford a loss and the Astros effectively needing to win out.
Last night the Mariners managed to jump out early and maintain their lead, taking a critical game one and likely moving the Astros out of the playoff race. .
Looking ahead the matchup on the hill is between Felix Hernandez and Mike Fiers, giving the edge to Seattle.
In game one the Astros saw themselves in a hole early and couldn’t fight back as they fell 4-3.
Jose Altuve continued his relatively cold month of September and the Mariners just seemed a step ahead of Houston on a critical Monday night in the MLB.
With the loss the Astros are more likely than not out of the playoff race barring a complete meltdown by the teams ahead of them.
After stopping their three-game skid with a win over Los Angeles on Sunday it will be interesting to see whether or not the Astros have enough gas in the tank to overcome Seattle and make a big push at the AL Wild Card.
Felix Hernandez finally got back on track and to looking in prime form in his last start, so the Astros better be ready.
With an AL Wild Card berth at stake in the coming games it will be interesting to see just how much the King is utilized and whether or not Servais trusts his bullpen enough to cut back on some innings so Felix can make an appearance here and there down the stretch.
This may depend on the outcome of Tuesday’s game as Seattle can hardly afford another loss on the year.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Seattle has won 8 of Felix Hernandez’s last 10 starts
- The Astros have won 11 games this year when Fiers has started at home
- Felix Hernandez has won four straight at Minute Maid Park
Free Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The big key in this game is whether or not Felix Hernandez can carry his momentum from his previous performance. If he can, Seattle will take game two. If not the Mariners still have a shot but with the way Houston can pounce on opponents, it will be awfully hard for them to keep up with the Astros with no momentum on the hill. Still, I like King Felix and the Mariners in this one.

Though Nelson Cruz may be a bit hurt don’t think the Mariners can’t find production elsewhere. Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager, and even Seth Smith all look to finish the year off in style. Plus, don’t expect Cruz to nurse his wrist injury like it’s the start of the season. Seattle is chasing a postseason appearance and so will Cruz.
