Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Royals vs. Athletics

Considering these two teams possess the worst records in the American League, I think it is safe to say that this is not a preview of the ALDS. Thus, why not add some extra excitement to this game?

Between Matt Olson, Matt Chapman, Chris Bassitt, and Sean Manaea, the A’s traded away a lot of players this offseason. For now, though, one marquee player remains — Frankie Montas. In 13 starts this season, the right-hander has been tremendous, posting a 3.17 SIERA and 20.6% K-BB, while also inducing more ground balls (48.1%) than he had the past two seasons. The Royals rank in the bottom 10 in wRC+and have the fourth-lowest ISO this season, and with how Montas has pitched this season, how could you not feel good about the matchup?

Most likely, it will be Zack Greinke coming back from the injured list to make this start, which is a risk, especially given his struggles (6.7% K-BB, 5.00 SIERA). Luckily for him, he faces an Oakland offense with the second-worst wRC+ and ISO and will be pitching in the most pitcher-friendly ballpark in all of baseball, according to Baseball Savant. Montas is one of the more reliable pitchers in baseball right now, while these are two bottom-five offenses playing in a gargantuan ballpark. Especially for East Coasters, you may not be tuned in for this entire game, but here’s hoping for a smooth first inning!
