Astros Try To Avoid Another Slow Start

Many people are high on the Houston Astros this season. Many people were high on the Houston Astros last season as well, but that did not stop the team from opening the season with a ghastly 7-17 record in April. If Houston wants to take a step forward and fulfil lofty expectations, the team needs to get off on the right foot. The 'Stros will try to do just that when they host the Seattle Mariners to kick off their season Monday.

  • The Mariners are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road against the Astros.
  • The total has gone OVER in 3 of the Mariners' last 4 games against the Astros.
  • The Mariners are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games against the AL West.

Equally important for the Astros will be the play of Dallas Keuchel, who gets the Opening Day start. Keuchel looked like a completely different pitcher last season compared to his Cy Young-winning performance the year prior, with the 'Stros ace posting a 4.55 ERA while struggling with shoulder issues. In three starts against the Mariners last season, Keuchel posted a 4.26 ERA and allowed a hit per inning.

Felix Hernandez makes his 10th Opening Day start for Seattle, a team record. King Felix has posted a stellar 6-1 record with a 1.49 ERA in his previous nine openers. However, Hernandez posted a dreadful 8.10 ERA and a 2.400 WHIP in two starts against Houston last season.
