The Astros (75-49, 1st in AL West) continue their West Coast farewell tour with 2018’s penultimate series against the Mariners (71-53, 3rd in AL West)

MLB: Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros seek to increase their lead in a tight AL West race. The Mariner’s, although in third place, are still within striking distance at 4.5 games behind the Astros. The Astros will play tonight without the services of the reinjured George Springer, who has a quad injury. On the mound, Gerrit Cole faces venerable Felix Hernandez.

Here are the lineups.
