Astros Continue To Be MLB’s Premier Road Team

The Houston Astros have the best record in baseball and it is largely thanks to their impressive play on the road. The ’Stros are 28-9 away from Houston this season and have won 13 of their past 16 while traveling. The Astros look for yet another road — and series — win when they close out a three-game set against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • The Astros are 15-7 SU in their past 22 games against the Mariners.
  • The Mariners are 6-1 SU in their past 7 games.
  • Carlos Correa is 6-for-19 with 5 runs in the past 5 games.

Top prospect Francis Martes will get the start for the Astros in place of Brad Peacock, who went on paternity leave Saturday. In his previous three appearances for the ’Stros this season, Martes has posted a 5.02 ERA but has seemed to have his control issues somewhat tamed. The hurler is known to be erratic at times but has managed to throw 13 strikeouts compared to seven walks in the bigs.

The Mariners will start Ariel Miranda, who has been stellar at Safeco during his young career. Miranda has 14 career appearances in Seattle, with the lefty carrying a 2.62 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP in those outings. This season alone, Miranda is allowing just 1.7 runs per game at Safeco.
