MLB Game Preview: Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners - Date: 9/23/2020 Astros seek playoff clincher vs. MarinersThe Houston Astros are on the verge of clinching their fourth consecutive postseason appearance.If the Astros beat the host Seattle Mariners in the finale of a three-game series Wednesday afternoon and the Los Angeles Angels lose to the San Diego Padres, Houston would capture second place in the American League West and a spot in the expanded postseason in this pandemic-shortened season.The Astros (28-27) have a 3 1/2-game lead over the Angels (25-31) and a four-game edge on the Mariners (24-31) with five games left."We've just got to take care of our own business," Astros manager Dusty Baker said.The rebuilding Mariners also have a slim shot at an AL wild-card berth, but they are four games behind the Toronto Blue Jays (28-27) for the last playoff position. While the Mariners have already lost the tiebreaker against the Astros by virtue of the season series between the teams, they hold the tiebreaker against the Blue Jays based on their record in their past 20 division games."We've put some nice streaks together, and everybody got excited that we had a chance to make a run at the playoffs," Seattle manager Scott Servais said.

In 15 career appearances against Seattle, including 13 starts, Greinke is 7-1 with a 2.08 ERA.

Margevicius has pitched twice against the Astros this season, a scoreless inning of relief on July 27 and a six-inning start on Aug. 15 in Houston.
