Houston need to win the series
The Astros, after beating the Mariners in the first game of the series, have equalized with their opponent. Houston and Seattle now have 12-11 each. The Los Angeles Angels are ahead of everyone else in the American League West Division standings, with 15-9.
Christian Xavier, a long reliever who will be in the starting lineup for the second game in a row, will pitch for Houston in the second game against Seattle. Last game, the 25-year-old pitcher allowed two runs in 5 full innings against the Texas Rangers (4-3).
Seattle are at risk of losing the third straight series
The Mariners have lost two straight-away series before their road trip to Houston. First, Scott Servais' team failed against Tampa Bay and then against Miami. If Seattle also lose the second game against the Astros, it will be their third loss in a row.
Chris Flexen will pitch for the Mariners in the upcoming game. The pitcher is 1-3 and has a 3.38 ERA in four starts in the new league.
Expert Betting Tips
The Astros are tied with the Mariners after winning the first game of the series. Dusty Baker's team can now overtake their opponent in the standings. As yesterday's game showed, the teams' classes are very different, so it will be difficult for Seattle to beat a motivated Houston. Mariners pitcher Flexen has already lost to the Astros this season, and his second loss to the Texans will not be surprising.
The prediction is a win for Houston.
- W1 and Total Under 10.5 for 2.20;
- Handicap 1 (-1.5) for 2.23;
- Seattle Total Under 3.5 for 1.90.
