The Houston Astros defeated the Seattle Mariners 6-1 tonight inching them closer to their fifth playoff berth in the last five seasons.

Alex Bregman went 2 for 4 with one walk and had two put-outs at third base (1st & 2nd inning).

Alex’s first hit came in the first inning facing Mariners pitcher Ljay Newsome. With a 2-2 count, Alex singled on a ground ball to center fielder Kyle Lewis on a 91.8 MPH four-seam fastball.

In his next at-bat in the top 4th, Alex lined-out to shortstop J.P. Crawford on a 1-1 84.3 MPH changeup.

Facing Mariners pitcher Casey Sadler in the top 6th, Alex flew out to left fielder Jake Fraley on a 1-0 91.6 MPH Sinker.

In the top 7th, Alex faced Mariners pitcher Brandon Brennon catching the 1-2 fifth pitch (92.9 MPH Sinker) resulting in a sharp line drive to left fielder Jake Fraley, advancing Michael Brantley to 2nd.

The current postseason projections have the Astros as the sixth seed which would place them in a best-of-three Wild Card Series against the division-champion Oakland A’s.
