    7-22 Jose Urquidy (R) vs. Marco Gonzales (L) 9:10 MLBN (out-of-market only)

    7-23 Justin Verlander (R) vs. TBD 3:10

    I’d love to make a statement this series. Hopefully the team doesn’t have a hangover from the quick turnaround after the DH.

    Let’s see how well the Mariners are really playing.

    After a few decades Seattle finally seems to have legit momentum, no smoke an mirrors this season. This series means a lot more to them than it does to us.

    Understandably the atmosphere tonight will likely be electric. Would be a shame if some team came in and pissed all over it.

    I know nobody thinks this team will factor in the division race, but 14 in a row is 14 in a row.

    Lets put an end to that!

    I’ll be at tomorrow’s game a few rows back from the field behind 3rd base. I have a 12-1 record over the years watching the stros here in Seattle. F Mariners fans. Always obnoxious towards us for no reason. Now they think they’re relevant. Once again. F mariners fans.

    Time for this fluke to come to an end. Mariners own Urquidy this season.

    As this Astros core gets older, theres only one message that these youngblood challengers need to know- theres plenty of silver on this back.

    Tonight is a tough one. They routinely smash Urquidy and we routinely don’t hit much against Marco.

    Urquidy is a terrible pitch with no run support. Bats get going tonight and Urquidy will relax and pitch fine. He has a 7 ERA with 2 our less runs with a 1.6 whip. Give him 3 or more and he is 19-4 with a 3.31 era and a whip of 1.03.

    Come on bats Gonzales is ripe for the picking.

    M's getting a new streak started thanks to the Astros

    Nice to see another Seattle transplant from Houston on here. I'll be at both games Saturday and Sunday and I'll be really surprised to see T-Mobile park full for an Astros game. I also agree on Mariner fans, people up here are so introverted, they save all their anger for sporting events. I know I'll have to bite my tongue this weekend or else I might end up in jail lol. :D

    Yes I thought so too, he seems to relax on the mound and free flow if he has the lead.

    Maybe he needs to be the bullpen guy if LMJ gets back to form. Bring him in after 6th if we got a lead and let him stretch it to the studs.

    Urquidy has had some off nights, but mostly he sucked for the 1st month and has been back to normal since the beginning of May.

    That's how it feels, but he actually gave up 2 runs or less in 4 of his first 6 starts

    Seattle has hammered him this year, other than that he has been very good.
