Pitching Match

RHP Jarred Cosart ( 1-1 / 2.13 ERA / 1.33 WHIP) vs. RHP Taijuan Walker (1-0 / 4.38 ERA / 0.90 WHIP)

Preview

Another day, another series; the Astros continue to build towards the future. September call-ups may have come up short in the flashy future prospects department. But, the Astros already have Jarred Cosart on the roster to take on Mariners' top prospect Taijuan Walker.

The Jarred Cosart Show has reached it's tenth episode. He had his shortest outing of the season in his last outing against Minnesota on September 3. Cosart lasted only four innings, giving up 2 home runs that resulted in four runs. This will be Cosart's seventh start on the road where he has a 1.38 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. While his 4.25 FIP (courtesy of Fan Graphs) say he's due for a balancing out like against the Twins, I expect the spacious Safeco Field to help the your right-hander tonight.

Cosart will be dealing with four Mariners hitting over .300 over this past week, Raul Ibanez, Kendry Morales, Michael Saunders, and Kyle Seager. The ageless wonder Ibanez is batting .321 over his last 28 at-bats, collecting two home runs, five runs batted in, and five walks.

Taijuan Walker is making his second start in three games against the Astros in his young career, holding Houston to one unearned run over five innings in their previous meeting. Bookended by Houston was one start against the Royals, he allowed four runs over five innings.

L.J. Hoes and Jonathan Villar were the lone two Astros to get a hit off Walker - Villar picked up a double.
