Astros vs Mariners Prediction & Pick

The Astros are sending in Lance McCullers Jr. in hopes that he can help sweep the Mariners. McCullers has had a ton of success against his AL West rivals, going 10-3 with a 2.80 ERA in 18 career starts. Furthermore, he hasn't lost to Seattle since September 2020.

Meanwhile, the Mariners are rolling with George Kirby, who had a solid rookie season. Still, Kirby has given up nine walks and 12 runs on 22 hits over his last 19.1 innings, resulting in a 5.59 ERA. With the Astros having talented hitters like Kyle Tucker, Yordan Alvarez and Jose Altuve, it could be a short appearance for the rookie.

The Astros consistently have deep playoff runs for a reason, whereas the Mariners still have a lot of learning to do. Back Houston advancing to the ALCS here.

Final Score Prediction: Astros: 4 | Mariners: 2

Astros vs Mariners Probable Starting Pitchers
