The Seattle Mariners want to claim revenge after being swept at home in a three-game series against the Houston Astros over the last weekend. Seattle ended the first half of the season with a 14-game winning streak, putting themselves in a comfortable position for a wild card spot.
The Astros were looking great after sweeping the New York Yankees in a doubleheader, but things went south quickly. They won 1 out of 3 against the Oakland Athletics, a team that is currently sitting at the very bottom of the standings. Despite their struggles at RingCentral Coliseum, the Astros still have the third-best record in MLB and hold a commanding 11-game lead over the Mariners in the American League West division.
Houston swept the Mariners the last time they met, but overall the 15 head-to-head games played between these franchises have been competitive this season, with the Astros leading the series 9-6. This might end up being a more exciting matchup than expected, especially because Julio Rodriguez will be available for this game after missing the last series against Houston.
Jose Urquidy is making his 19th start of the season for the Houston Astros. He is holding a 9-4 record with a 3.93 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 100.2 innings pitched while striking out 77. Urquidy has not performed well against the Mariners for the majority of his career, but last Friday, he limited them to 1 run in 6 innings to pick up the win. The 27-year-old is 3-2 with a 2.63 ERA in seven starts while playing at home.
The Mariners will be using Logan Gilbert as their starting pitcher today, making this his 21st start of the season. He is carrying a 10-4 record with a 2.77 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP over 117 innings pitched while striking out 112. In six career outings against Houston, Gilbert is 2-2 with a 4.36 ERA.
