The Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros meet Friday in MLB action at Minute Maid Park.

The Seattle Mariners look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Seattle Mariners have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 90 hits and 60 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Daniel Vogelbach have combined for 127 hits and 76 RBI. The Seattle Mariners didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.

The Houston Astros could use a win after losing nine of their last 11 games. The Astros have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last nine games. The Houston Astros have lost 10 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Michael Brantley leads the Astros with 97 hits and 43 RBI while Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel have combined for 162 hits and 63 RBI. Wade Miley gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 3.51 ERA and 78 strikeouts this season. Miley is 2-1 with a 3.90 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.

The Mariners are 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games, 7-16 in their last 23 vs. American League West and 2-8 in their last 10 road games vs. a left-handed starter. The Astros are 47-18 in their last 65 during game 1 of a series, 35-16 in their last 51 vs. American League West and 6-1 in Miley's last 7 home starts. The Mariners are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Houston and 1-6 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-0 in Miley's last 5 home starts. The over is 42-17-2 in Mariners last 61 overall.

The Houston Astros are going through it right now, but we all know it's only a matter of time before they turn things around. The Seattle Mariners also aren't the most trustworthy team in the world, and they've lost seven of the last meetings against the Astros. Miley also has a 1.91 ERA and a .207 allowed batting average through 42.1 innings at home this season. The Astros should be able to help stop the bleeding with a feel good victory here.
