|Date & Time||Wednesday June 5, 2019, 10:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Houston Astros -167 / Seattle Mariners +145 -- Over/Under: 9
The Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners meet Wednesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Houston Astros look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 11 games. The Astros have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. The Houston Astros have won nine straight games when scoring more than one run. Michael Brantley leads the Astros with 76 hits and 38 RBI while Josh Reddick and Alex Bregman have combined for 120 hits and 63 RBI. Brad Peacock gets the ball, and he is 5-2 with a 3.17 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Peacock is 6-4 with a 4.21 ERA and 66 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing 13 of their last 15 games. The Mariners have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners have lost five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 62 hits and 42 RBI while Mitch Haniger and Edwin Encarnacion have combined for 105 hits and 70 RBI. Mike Leake gets the ball, and he is 4-6 with a 4.71 ERA and 51 strikeouts this season. Leake is 6-7 with a 3.92 ERA and 65 strikeouts in his career against the Astros.
The Astros are 56-27 in their last 83 Wednesday games, 4-1 in Peacock's last 5 road starts and 21-7 in Peacock's last 28 starts. The Mariners are 7-19 in their last 26 home games, 1-5 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 2-7 in Leake's last 9 starts. The Astros are 38-17 in the last 55 meetings in Seattle and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Leake's last 5 starts overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Peacock's last 5 road starts.
At this point it doesn't matter about the pitching matchup or anything in-between. Backing the Seattle Mariners just doesn't make much sense, as this team is on one of the worst stretches in recent memory and are showing no signs of turning things around. In fact, things may end up getting worse, as it's hard to show up to the ballpark with any confidence when the losses just pile up. The Houston Astros are also playing too well to fade right now, but at the end of the day, I don't think it matters who the M's play. I'm on the other side.
