Wednesday afternoon, the Seattle Mariners and Chris Young will take on the Houston Astros and Brad Peacock. Young will make his 16th start and 17th appearance as Peacock makes his 12th start and 16th appearance.
Chris Young picked up the win in his last outing and that improved his record to 7 -4 with a 3.15 ERA. In the win, Young pitched 5 innings of 1 run, 4 hit ball. He walked a batter and struck out 4. Young has had a decent season considering the fact that missed most of 2013 after undergoing surgery to fix a nerve problem in his pitching shoulder. Before he got hurt, he went 1 -2 with a 6.89 ERA in 9 starts in the Minors.
This season, Young has a start against the Astros. He pitched to a no-decision after allowing 3 runs on 4 hits (including a homer) in 7 innings of work.
Brad Peacock pitched to a no-decision in his last start and that held his record at 2- 4 with a 4.21 ERA. In that outing, Peacock allowed 2 runs on 7 hits (including a home run) in 6.2 innings of work as he walked 2 and struck out 3. With a few more starts, Peacock should match last season's record of 5 - 6 with an ERA of 5.18 in 14 starts and 4 relief appearances.
In 2013, Peacock didn't face the Mariners but he has a start against them this season. In that outing, he didn't get the decision after allowing 4 runs on 6 hits (including a home run) in 6 innings of work.
