Seattle Mariners ML
The Seattle Mariners have had a lot of luck against the Houston Astros of late. They are 6-0 in their last 6 games against the Astros.
Then again, who hasn’t had a good time playing the Astros the last couple seasons. Houston is simply the worst team in baseball by a large margin.
Hisashi Iwakuma has been great this season for the Mariners. He has an ERA of almost exactly 3, and he has been very good on the road all year.
Iwakuma has a WHIP of 1.01, which means he doesn’t pitch his way into very many jams at all.
Brett Oberholtzer has pitched well for the Astros in his first few games in the majors, but I don’t think that is going to continue. Oberholtzer had a 4.4 ERA in Triple A in his career, and that usually don’t equal instant success in the big leagues.
Look for some regression to the mean on Oberholtzer in the coming weeks. At the same time, Iwakuma should be able to mow down this weak Astros lineup.
The Mariners have quite a bit of young talent in their lineup.
Expect the Mariners to win the seventh straight against Houston on Sunday.
Take Seattle. Good Luck, Razor Ray.
