Houston Astros vs Seattle Mariners MLB Free Picks, Prediction 7/26/2021

Houston Astros Will Try to Get a Win When Meet Seattle Mariners from T-Mobile Park, Seattle, Washington - Major League Baseball (MLB) Match Preview and Prediction Game on Monday, July 26, 2021.
Preview

The Seattle Mariners, who started the season with a rotation of six starting pitchers, are now struggling to find a healthy body to use as a fifth starter.

So when the Houston Astros arrive in town Monday to open a key three-game series, the Mariners will send rookie right-hander Darren McCaughan (0-0, 1.80 ERA) to the mound for his first major league start.

The Mariners have three straight wins over Oakland to move closer to 1-1 / 2 games by the Athletics in the race for second place in the American League playoffs.

McCaughan made his Colorado debut on Wednesday, pitching five innings without a career hit in a 6-3 loss to the Rockies.

To give McCaughan a "soft landing" in his debut, the Mariners used Keynan Middleton as a starter. He backfired, as Middleton allowed five runs in the first inning.

The Astros, leaders of the AL West, just finished a three-game trip to Texas to go 5-1 / 2 games ahead of second-ranked Oakland.

They embark on an eight-game trip to Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, where they will face the defending World Series champs, the Dodgers.

Abraham Toro hit a two-run homer when the Astros won 3-1 on Sunday.

The Astros are expected to send right-hander Luis Garcia (7-5, 2.86) to the mound for Game 1 of the series at T-Mobile Park.

Garcia faced Seattle once before, losing 1-0 on April 29 to Houston despite just one run and three hits in five innings. The only race came on a solo circuit for Mariners' Taylor Trammell, who has since been fired at Triple-A Tacoma.
