The Astros and Mariners continue their divisional matchup tonight with Houston currently one game up on Seattle in the AL West. Both teams are trying to gain ground on the streaking Rangers so every divisional game from here on in could be pivotal.

Keuchel is far from the pitcher he was last year in his AL Cy Young Award-winning season but he has posted three straight quality starts that have all resulted in Astros’ wins. The Houston Ace has started two games against the Mariners this year and is 0-1 with a 4.85 ERA.
Walker is finally coming into his own as an MLB starter after an up and down 2015.
