The Astros will be seeking a 10th consecutive victory when they wrap up a four-game series against the Mariners in a Sunday matinee at Minute Maid Park. A victory would give the Astros an 18-7 mark, which would be their best start after 25 games in club history.
A big reason for Houston's success is the Astros haven't lost a game they've led at any point after tying for the Major League lead in blown saves a year ago.
