It’s the rubber match of the series. And for a playoff berth.

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

With an Astros win tonight and an Angels loss tonight, the Astros will clinch second place and a berth in the 2020 AL playoffs with five games left to play. As things stand now, the Astros will be the 6th seed and face the Oakland A’s in the first round.

For the clinch the Astros send out their ace, Zack Greinke. His opponent is Nick Margivicius. The bats woke up a bit last night. Two homers, and four hits from Kyle Tucker. Let’s hope this trend continues into the playoffs.

Here’s the lineup.
