SEATTLE -- James Paxton was already in trouble before he really lost control.Three wild pitches and five runs later, the Seattle Mariners were on their way to a collective thud to start the second half of the season.I made some bad pitches there and they made us pay, Paxton said. The wild pitches there didnt help. It wasnt good.Carlos Correa had a two-out, two-run double off Paxton, then scored from second base on a wild pitch during Houstons five-run fifth inning as the Astros beat the Mariners 7-3 on Friday night.Seattle dropped its fifth straight against Houston in part because of an inability to finish innings, both with its pitching and when there were opportunities at the plate. The most glaring of those failures came in the fifth as Paxton leaked runs. Houston scored four times with two outs, including George Springer and Correa both scoring on wild pitches.We didnt finish that inning. Its something weve talked about here getting (going) in the second half, is finishing at-bats. Youve got to finish the innings, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. You really have to finish, and we just didnt get it done tonight. They put up a five spot and we just couldnt overcome it.Paxton (2-4) was shaky from the outset, giving up a leadoff home run to George Springer. But real problems emerged in the fifth.While Correa and Springer had the big hits, the Astros rally in the fifth started with consecutive doubles by Evan Gattis and Jake Marisnick. Springer scored on the second of Paxtons three wild pitches in the inning and Correa missed a three-run homer by just a few feet, doubling off the wall in left-center field. He showed off his speed moments later scoring from second on Paxtons final wild pitch of the inning.I felt like I was placing the ball too much instead of just letting it rip. I felt like I didnt have a lot of life on my stuff tonight, Paxton said. I think just trying to be too perfect, hit spots, instead of just be more aggressive with my stuff.The Astros big inning offset a shaky performance from starter Doug Fister, who struggled to get through five innings. Fister (9-6) retired 12 of the first 14 batters, but gave back three runs after being staked to a 6-0 lead, two scoring on Shawn OMalleys double in the fifth. After walking Seth Smith, Fister broke Robinson Canos bat on a weak grounder back to the mound and escaped the inning.We had a chance. We put three up there and had a couple guys on for (Canos) at-bat. Couple slow curveballs and they got him out front there, Servais said. Thats what Fister does. He keeps you off balance. His stuff isnt going to overpower you, but hes smart and knows how to pitch and changes speeds well.Springers home run was his seventh in 18 career games at Safeco Field and he now has 20 homers this season, matching the career high he set in 2014. Marwin Gonzalez added a solo shot in the seventh inning.INJURY WORRIESSeattle lost shortstop Ketel Marte to a sprained right ankle in the third inning when he was thrown out sliding into third base trying to extend a double into a triple. The team said he was day-to-day.I feel better now. But when that happened, that was hurt, Marte said. I was trying to continue in the game. ... Its good to take me out and get some treatment. Tomorrow I will be better.TRAINERS ROOM:Astros: OF Colby Rasmus wasnt in the starting lineup on Friday, but manager A.J. Hinch said Rasmus is fully healthy after missing the final four games before the All-Star break due to an ear infection.Mariners: RHP Felix Hernandez made his second rehab start in the minors. Pitching for Triple-A Tacoma, Hernandez threw 5 2/3 innings, giving up one run and five hits. He is slated to start for Seattle on July 20 against the White Sox.UP NEXTAstros: Lance McCullers (4-3) looks to rebound after his shortest outing of the season in his last start. McCullers lasted just four innings last week against Oakland.Mariners: Hisashi Iwakuma (9-6) goes for his 10th win. Iwakuma has gone 8-2 over his past 10 starts. Cheap Vita Vea Jersey . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames. Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. http://www.cheapbuccaneersjerseyselite.com/ . Ryan Garbutt had a goal and two assists as Dallas snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. Cheap Justin Watson Jersey .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Cheap Alex Cappa Jersey .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. Saturday brings us a fine slate, with worthwhile options in every tier, including multiple aces at the top and a marquee matchup with two of the NLs best squaring off. So what are we waiting for? Lets get to it.PitchingEliteIt always complicates things when the top pitcher of the day finds himself in an unappealing matchup, but thats the case on Saturday, with Jose Fernandez heading to Cleveland to take on the Indians. Not only does the right-hander have to face DH instead of a pitcher, but hell be tasked with shutting down an above average lineup thats out-produced every other AL team since the All-Star break (109 wRC+). He also hasnt fared nearly as well on the road this year (4.02 road ERA vs 1.91 home ERA). On the other hand, Fernandez is the top-ranked pitcher for a reason. His strikeout potential is unmatched, and hes allowed one or zero runs three of his past four turns. Still, while Fernandez is always a tough guy to fade, hes far from a must-play in this spot.The marquee matchup of the day is Giants versus Cubs at Wrigley Field, with Madison Bumgarner and Jake Arrieta pitted against each other. Neither matchup is favorable. Bumgarner gets a Cubs team that smashes lefties (117 wRC+), while Arrieta gets a Giants lineup that draws plenty of walks and rarely strikes out. Between the two, Bumgarner makes for the more appealing tournament option, as the Cub strike out a lot more than the Giants. However, Im not sure Im willing to pay the premium to roster either in cash games.Rich Hill and his well-publicized blister issues are slated to make his second start in Dodger Blue on Saturday. The veteran lefty lucked into a great spot. as the San Diego Padres are in town for a weekend set with their SoCal rivals. Theres risk of an early blister-induced exit, so its better to use Hill in tournament play.SolidTanner Roarks has been one of baseballs most consistent starters. Through the seasons first five months, his ERA has been 3.56 or lower in each month. He also owns a 2.61 ERA since the All-Star break. A matchup against the Mets, who are below average against righty pitching and whiff 22 percent of the time, has Roark in another fine spot on Saturday. The ceiling is limited here because he doesnt miss many bats, but his high floor makes him a great cash-game option if youre not paying up.In terms of having a low ceiling but also a high floor, Rick Porcello is similar to Roark. Dating back to June 28, the Boston right-hander has allowed more than three earned runs in a game only once. His success should continue against an Oakland team that poses very little threat to right-handed pitchers (89 wRC+).A 5.76 second-half ERA will have most DFS players shying away from Vince Velasquez on Saturday. And that might be the right play. That said, the right-hander is still whiffing 10.5 batters per nine innings, and he gets a home start against a Braves lineup thats one of the most exploitable in baseball. Theres some tournament appeal here.Last time out, Marco Estrada snapped a three-start streak of failing to toss more than five frames with a seven-inning stint in Baltimore. Today hes in a great spot to make it two consecutive strong effforts with another road contest, this time in St.dddddddddddd Petersburg. In fact, the strikeout-prone Tampa Bay Rays lend Estrada the upside to be a DFS tournament option.StreamersAvailable in 60 percent of ESPN.com leagues, Kevin Gausman draws a home start against the Yankees. The Yankees offense has been hot of late, but theyve still been a below average offense against righties this season. For his part, Gausman sports a 3.04 ERA and 9.8 K/9 in the second half. In fact, his last start came against the Yankees, and he twirled seven shutout innings with nine whiffs.After holding a 3.48 combined ERA in April and May, Jaime Garcia has put up an ugly 5.09 ERA since. So, it should go without saying that theres plenty of risk here. Still, his matchup against Cincinnati is extremely favorable. Not only are the Reds one of the worst teams in baseball against lefty pitching (89 wRC+), but they strike out a ton, too (23 percent). If youre seeking a cheap GPP play, this is it.AvoidBlake Snells strikeout upside is appealing, but his 5.3 walk rate curbs the excitement. Add in a matchup against the Blue Jays, who pummel left-handed pitching, and this is a situation to avoid on Saturday.Taijuan Walker has done some good things this year, but hes given up 13 earned runs in 17 innings over his past three starts since rejoining the Mariners rotation. Even against an Angels offense thats middle-of-the-road, theres little reason to take a shot here.HittingBraden Shipley owns a 4.75 ERA in seven starts this season, which includes six or more runs allowed in two of his past three starts. In other words, a trip to Coors Field doesnt figure to go well. The right-hander has shown reverse splits this season (.397 wOBA allowed to right-handed batters), so theres no reason to stick only to Rockies hitters with the platoon advantage. Theyre all in play here.While Tyler Chatwood sports a 1.82 ERA on the road this year, he has yet to figure out Coors Field (5.43 ERA). Arizonas lineup is predominantly right-handed, but thats of little concern. This is still a fine stacking opportunity.James Shields has already allowed 32 home runs this season, putting him on pace to allow 39 dingers, which would by far be a career worst. With the Twins on the docket, theres plenty of upside with sluggers Brian Dozier, Miguel Sano and Max Kepler.Daniel Mengden holds a 5.73 as a starter this year, and hes set to face a Red Sox team that owns the highest wRC+ in baseball against right-handed pitching (115). It could be a long day for the Oakland right-hander. Im focusing on left-handed hitters in this one, so David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr. are the top targets.Most likely to go yard: Miguel SanoJames Shields has allowed more home runs than all but two pitchers in baseball. Meanwhile, Sano has slammed 30 of his 38 career homers against right-handers.Most likely to swipe a bag: Starling MarteJimmy Nelson has allowed 26 steals this season. Only Noah Syndergaard has allowed more. If Marte gets on base, he will surely be looking to burn some rubber.
