Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros
In todays game, the Astros made it three wins in a row with a walk-off victory over the Mariners in 13 innings. George Springer hit a three run home run to keep the Astros undefeated status. They’ll face the Mariners again tomorrow in the last game of the series and will aim for an early sweep. Ariel Miranda heads to the mound for the Mariners in his second MLB season. With the injury to Drew Smyly, Miranda steps up into the starting rotation after starting 10 games last season. As a rookie, Miranda showed promise with 5 wins and a respectable 3.54 ERA. He faces another young pitcher in Joe Musgrove from the Astros. Musgrove also made 10 starts in his rookie season and finished with 4 wins and 4 losses at an ERA of 4.06. Both teams made use of the bullpen in todays game, which will affect how both managers approach this game. The Wolf thinks the Mariners can bounce back after a tough lose today with Miranda on the mound.
