Altuve returns! The Astros battle the Mariners to maintain first place in the AL West

MLB: Houston Astros at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros succumbed to the Mariners last night who came from behind to win 7-4. The Astros now lead the Mariners by only 3.5 games, and are tied with the A’s for the lead in the AL West.

No more mystery! The Astros send Brad Peacock to the mound to take Lance McCullers’ place in the rotation. Framber Valdez was activated from Fresno so expect a motley collection of pitchers tonight.

Tonight’s lineup.
