Astros vs. Mariners Prediction

I’m on the Mariners here. I get why the Astros could be worth a look in a lot of spots, but this for me is not one of them. The Mariners clearly have the Astros number in my opinion and Arrighetti just has not looked comfortable as a starter at the major league level this season. Gilbert’s owned the Mariners going back a little while now, and I think he finds a way to get it done once again. Give me the Mariners in this one.
