A winning streak will be on the line for the Houston Astros on Friday when they battle the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.

The Astros will trot Joe Musgrove out to the mound in this one. Right hander Musgrove has a 4-6 record and a 5.09 ERA this season.

Musgrove’s opponent in this one will be Felix Hernandez. The Mariners right hander has a 4.73 ERA to go along with a 2-2 record this season.

Musgrove has dropped back-to-back starts since returning from a shoulder injury. He was roughed up by Boston for five runs and six hits over 5 2/3 innings in his last outing. The 24-year-old Musgrove is 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in two starts against Seattle this season.

Hernandez surrendered 39 hits – six homers – in just 26 2/3 innings prior to going on the disabled list. Opposing batters had a collective .348 average against him – well over his career .240 mark – but his control was superb as he walked just three batters. Hernandez is 3-6 with a 4.25 ERA in 11 career starts against the Astros and struggles with Jose Altuve (13-for-26) and Carlos Correa (4-for-8, one homer) but has shut down Josh Reddick (10-for-57).

Oddsmakers currently have the Mariners listed as 114-moneyline favorites versus the Astros, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Felix Hernandez will be back on the mound for the first time in nearly two months when the Seattle Mariners open a three-game home series against the torrid Houston Astros on Friday. Hernandez has been sidelined due to a shoulder injury and will face a tough test in his return as the Astros are the first team in the majors to reach 50 victories this season.

Hernandez struggled in April prior to the injury but told reporters on Thursday he no longer is in pain, and Mariners manager Scott Servais is eager to see the 31-year-old on the hill. “Felix pitches with a lot of emotion, and the adrenaline will be up (Friday) night,” Servais told reporters. “He’s anxious to get back out there and help the team.” Seattle has matched a season best with five consecutive victories as it goes up against Houston, which began a seven-game road trip with a four-game sweep in Oakland. “It doesn’t really count for anything,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch told reporters of notching win No. 50 on Thursday. “They don’t really give us credit for anything until the end of the season, but it’s obviously nice to win that many games that quickly.”

Last time out for Seattle, they were a 9-6 winner as they battled the Tigers on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Mariners at -142 were rewarded, while the 15 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Astros were a 12-9 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Athletics. That made winners of bettors who got Houston at -102 on the moneyline, while the total score (21) was good news for OVER bettors.
