Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros, second game of the series, promises to be very interesting, the defending champions arrive after losing the series against the Athletics, but that will not stop the offensive power that the team has had this season. The Mariners know that they must win more games at home, lately they have suffered more defeats than victories and the defending champions can do a lot of damage at home.
Houston Astros: We arrived hungry for victory.
The Astros continue to win series on the road, but so far have not been able to take the effectiveness to that glorious 70%, last week were close if they had won the series against the Athletics. In the 2018 season the Astros have a record of 42 wins and 20 defeats on the road. Before this series against the Mariners they lost against the Athletics, they won against the Giants and against the Dodgers. In the last 10 games the Astros have reaped 7 wins and only 3 losses.
Brad Peacock opens the second away game, 2 wins and 4 losses for him. The numbers of Peacock have been stable, .333 of effectiveness, 3.19 ERA and 1,043 WHIP. 2-2 in the last 4 games on the road for him. The Astros on the road are scoring up to 5.44 per game, 9.27 hits and 1.44 homeruns.
Seattle Mariners: The Astros arrive again at our house.
The Mariners know how hard things get every time the defending champions come home, before this series the Mariners had played 2 series against the Astros, both series were defeats, the Astros were always above the Mariners no matter nothing. In the last 10 games the Mariners have only won 2 games, lost the series against the Dodgers and were swept by the Blue Jays.
Mike Leake, a 9-year veteran as a pro, will be the pitcher for the second game of this important series where the Mariners seek to beat the Astros at least one series. Leake has this season a positive record of 8 wins and 7 losses, 3.90 ERA and 1,267 WHIP. Leake has lost the two games he has had this season against the Astros in the first two series.
