Mariners vs Astros Game 2 Info

2022 MLB Playoffs — ALDS Game 2 (HOU Leads 1-0)
No. 5 Seattle Mariners (90-72, 44-37 Away) vs. No. 1 Houston Astros (106-56, 55-26 Home)

Venue: Minute Maid Park — Houston, TX
Coverage: TBS

The ALDS round of the 2022 MLB Playoffs features a pair of exciting matchups, including a divisional showdown between the 5-seed Seattle Mariners and 1-seed Houston Astros. The Mariners were on their way to winning Game 1 with a 7-2 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth, however, the Astros managed to rally from behind to steal the 8-7 victory.

Can the Mariners find a way to rebound and head back to Seattle with the series tied 1-1? Or will the Astros win yet again on home soil, becoming one step closer to their sixth ALCS appearance in as many years?

The Astros enter this contest as a slight home favorite on the moneyline and spread. They are listed at -156 moneyline odds with +142 odds to cover the 1.5-run spread. The over/under on this matchup features a low 6.5 runs, notably because of the strength of the starting pitchers for each side.

Mariners vs Astros Prediction & Pick

After getting a comeback win over the Toronto Blue Jays to advance to the ALDS, the Mariners got a taste of their own medicine with Game 1's blown lead. Now, Seattle turns back to Luis Castillo, who didn't allow a single run on six hits over 7.1 innings in his outing against the Blue Jays.

The Mariners should also have an easier time hitting off Astros starter Framber Valdez. While the first-time MLB All-Star has been rock solid for the majority of 2022, he's given up 13 runs on 22 hits over his last 15.2 innings pitched alone, giving him a 5.74 ERA over that stretch.

Though the Astros should win this series in the long run, I expect the Mariners to at least make things interesting on Thursday.

Final Score Prediction: Mariners: 5 | Astros: 4

Mariners vs Astros Probable Starting Pitchers

The Seattle Mariners will look to Luis Castillo (8-6, 2.99 ERA) in Game 2 and the Houston Astros hand the ball to Framber Valdez (17-6, 2.82 ERA).
