The Houston Astros look for consecutive wins against the visiting Seattle Mariners in a Saturday tilt.
The Seattle Mariners are looking for consistency at the plate and are having trouble finding it. The Mariners struggled for everything in Friday’s series opening 10-0 defeat at Minute Maid Park as they have now dropped eight of eleven. Even Felix Hernandez was no help with eight runs plated on five hits including a pair of long balls in 1/3 of an inning in the worse outing of his career. The offense couldn’t compete with their four hit, three walk attack with Nelson Cruz singling and walking. Rookie Mike Montgomery makes his third start of the season when he faces the Mariners. Montgomery threw the ball well in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay with two runs plated on five hits over seven innings.
