Mike Lundin‘s Mariners vs. Astros Free Pick
Start Time: April 6, 2017, 8:10 PM
The Houston Astros are looking to complete a 4-0 sweep of this series with the Seattle Mariners, and I like their chances with Joe Musgrove on the mound. The 25 year old right-hander compiled a decent enough 4.06 ERA through his rookie season, and he was 3-1 with a 1.75 ERA in six games (five starts) home at Minute Maid Park. He might not have too much to fear from a Mariners squad that has mustered only four runs in 31 innings so far this season.
The Mariners turn to left-hander Ariel Miranda who struggled through spring training during which he posted a 5.03 ERA in 19 2/3 innings of work. The Mariners are 2-16 in their last 18 games after losing the first three games of a series and I think the Astros will prove well worth the price here.
