Come join the discussion as the Astros try to even the series against the Mariners and hopefully widen their 4 game lead in the AL West.

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros took a 1-0 lead into the ninth inning last night, but Hector Rondon allowed a grand slam home run to pinch hitter Daniel Vogelbach, and the Astros had no answer in the bottom of the ninth, so last night’s game was a disappointing 4-1 loss.

Tonight, Mike Leake, RHP (10-9, 3.99 ERA) faces Gerrit Cole, RHP (14-5, 2.88 ERA), who will try to regain the league lead in strikeouts from teammate Justin Verlander, but more importantly. get the Stros one game closer to clinching another AL Division title.

Here are tonight’s lineups.
