The Mariners couldn't do much against Valdez and the Astros bullpen who held them to only 2 runs in the game and they'll now have to face Lance McCullers who has been pretty solid since his return and has dominated them in his career. Geroge Kirby will start for the Mariners who has been up and down this season and was pounded in his last start with 4 runs in 6 hits against one of the weakest offenses in the league, the Tigers. The Astros are on another level and the Mariners are no rivals for them so go with the Astros for the sweep.
