After winning their final game before the All-Star break, the Mariners took three in a row at the Chicago White Sox to open their road trip, capped by a 7-6 win in 10 innings Sunday.Nelson Cruz's solo homer was the difference for Seattle (46-47), which has a chance to get back to .500 for the first time since June 25. Houston's lead over the Mariners in the American League West stands at a very comfortable 16 1/2 games, and it has won seven of 10 meetings between the two. The Astros rode a strong start from Mike Fiers (season-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings) en route to a 5-3 win over Minnesota on Sunday to take two of three. Lance McCullers Jr. will try to duplicate Fiers' performance when he gets the nod in the opener opposite lefty Ariel Miranda.TV: 8:10 p.m. ET, ROOT Sports Northwest (Seattle), ATT Sportsnet - HoustonPITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners LH Ariel Miranda (7-4, 4.15 ERA) vs. Astros RH Lance McCullers Jr. (7-2, 3.05)Miranda followed up seven scoreless innings on June 30 by giving up six runs in five frames five days later against Kansas City.
