Seattle Mariners vs Houston Astros Match Preview and Free Picks
The red-hot Seattle Mariners aim for their sixth consecutive victory when they conclude their two-game series with the host Houston Astros on Wednesday. Seattle rolled to a 7-1 victory in Tuesday's opener to increase its lead over Houston in the American League West to two games.
Kyle Seager, Jean Segura and Mike Zunino all homered in the opener as the Mariners moved 16 games over .500 for the first time since the 130th game of the 2007 season. Nelson Cruz continued his surge by going 2-for-4 and is 13-for-31 with two homers and eight RBIs over his last eight contests.
The Astros, who have lost three straight, had their streak of 12 consecutive games with at least one homer snapped as seven of their nine hits in the series opener were singles. Lance McCullers Jr. traditionally has fared well against Seattle and matched his career best of 11 strikeouts while beating the Mariners on April 17, when he allowed just one hit - a first-inning homer by Robinson Cano.
