In the bottom of the eighth, Mariners' Andrus Munoz hit the first Astros' batter he faced, Yuli Gurriel who came around to score the tie-breaking run for Houston on a double by Alex Bregman. More critically for Seattle (+1.5) bettors, Bregman scored an insurance run on a Munoz wild pitch as the Astros beat the M's 4-2. Ryan Pressly gave up a two-out single to J.P. Crawford in the ninth but earned the save, his 21st of the year.
On the GridCard, Winky (40) put up a TallBoy and edged out Offroad (39) and Zeke (39). It was Winky's first Hamlin-Hopper of the year. The GridCard played tough, allowing only one other Qualifying Score to KaitMac (37) who also took down the King Kong (71).
