Part two of Matt Malatesta's top 100 continues..

So many Class of 2019 prospects, so few slots.

VYPE will be rolling out our Hot 100 recruits for 2019 and where they are signing. The next grouping were headliners all season, starting with Manvel's Ladarius Owens. Owens was the leading RB for the Mavs and could be TSU's first big-time commit.

What a year Raymond Richardson had? The QB had over 3,300 yards and was the Offensive MVP of the District. Someone has to scoopthis athlete up. Tomball Memorial Christian Lovick had a great year, racking up 1,400 yards, while Todd Hudson of Clear Springs was his district's Offensive MVP.

VYPE's Hot 100

No. 81-90

81. Ladarius Owens, Manvel, RB, TSU-commit

So confused why Owens has been so slept on. He was Manvel's leading rusher with over 1,100 yards and can do it between the tackles or on the outside. Coach Clarence McKinney got a steal.

82. Raymond Richardson, Jersey Village, QB, Uncommitted

Obsessed with this guy. Been around the program forever. District Offensive MVP, TD Club honoree with over 3,300 yards offense. Kid can play somewhere. Very athletic at 6-foot-2. Needs to gain weight. Good in the classroom.

83. Rason Williams, Elsik, DE, Houston-commit

Williams was a quiet commit to UH. At 6-foot-3, Williams is RAW. He has so much upside if he can pick up the system. He can run, but must put in the work in the weight room to get college-ready.

84. Peyton Sobosle, College Park, TE, UTSA-commit

It the new world of athletic tight ends, Sobosle is pretty legit. He didn't get that many touches his season in a run-oriented offense, but at 6-foot-6, he has the size to block and catch out of the backfield.

85. Christian Lovick, Tomball Memorial, RB, Tulsa-commit

In a high-powered offense at Tomball Memorial, Lovick was a beast carrying the ball. He had over 1,400 yards rushing and was a district first-teamer. Smallish back but runs hard.

Houston drops first of three

Mariners heat up late to take series opener over Astros

With the playoffs just a little over a week away, the Astros started their last week of regular-season games in Seattle against the Mariners. A couple of wins against them would secure Houston's spot as the AL West's second playoff participant, with Oakland all but having locked up the first spot sitting six games in front of Houston with seven left to play. Here is a quick rundown of the opener from T-Mobile Park:

Final Score: Mariners 6, Astros 1.

Record: 27-27, second in the AL West.

Winning pitcher: Marco Gonzalez (7-2, 3.06 ERA).

Losing pitcher: Lance McCullers Jr. (3-3, 4.24 ERA).

Bitter end to an impressive start for McCullers Jr.

Both starting pitchers would take a scoreless deep late into Monday night's game. While the Astros were trying to figure out Marco Gonzalez, Lance McCullers Jr. was repeating the success of his last start, a seven-inning two-hit start against the Rangers.

McCullers Jr. allowed a two-out walk in the bottom of the first inning, then proceeded to retire the next fourteen batters before a one-out double in the bottom of the sixth gave the Mariners their first hit of the night. He would go on to finish the sixth before things unraveled in the seventh.

A leadoff walk would result in a run after an error by Jose Altuve left runners on first and second, setting up an RBI-double to give the Mariners the first run of the night and a 1-0 lead. McCullers Jr. looked like he was going to cap off his night by stranding the runners on second and third after back-to-back strikeouts, but before he could get the last out of the inning allowed a three-run home run to blow the game open at 4-0. His final line: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR, 102 P.

Mariners take the opener

Despite getting several hits against him along the way, Houston could not get anything substantial going against Gonzalez, who would shutout the Astros over eight innings of work. After Enoli Paredes finished the seventh, Brandon Bielak would take over out of Houston's bullpen for the bottom of the eighth.

He struggled mightily, loading the bases with no outs, including a hit batter before allowing a two-RBI single to extend Seattle's lead to 6-0. The Astros would get on the board in the top of the ninth, getting a two-out double by Carlos Correa, who would score on an RBI-single by Josh Reddick. That would be too little, too late as the 6-1 score would go final as the Mariners took the opener, keeping the Astros' magic number at two.

Up Next: The middle game of this three-game set will be another 8:10 PM Central start on Tuesday. On the mound will be Framber Valdez (4-3, 3.82 ERA) for the Astros and Ljay Newsome (0-1, 6.35 ERA) for the Mariners.
