Lineups for Astros-Mariners

The Astros will try to win their first series of the season tonight at Safeco Field. Coming off a smashing offensive performance Tuesday in which they posted 16 runs and 22 hits in a 16-9 win, the Astros will send right-hander Brad Peacock to the mound in his second start of the season. Be sure to follow along with GameDay for all the stats and play-by-play.

A win tonight would give the Astros their first series win of the season and their third consecutive series win over the Mariners (also, 2007, 2004).

Would love to see the team expand on last night’s production tonight. I don’t expect them to get 22 hits a game every day, but it was great to see what they are capable of.

Hoping Ankiel breaks out of his slump and that Peacock can be more efficient with his pitches.

A series win would be great and probably a confidence builder!!
