The Astros hope to stay strong and cloose out with a string of victories to ensure the second straight AL West title.
The Mariners, once contenders for that crown, are now clearly pretenders, and are all but completely out of contention for post season play.
Seattle sends Wade LeBlanc, LHP (8-4, 3.56 ERA) against rookie Framber Valdez, LHP (3-1, 2.66 ERA).
Here is the Astros lineup.
