Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Reds vs. Giants

At long last, we finally get to see Tommy Pham and Joc Pederson face off! What truly went down in this fantasy football debacle will always be a mystery (or perhaps not if it keeps brewing over). Still, if this doesn’t show the significance of fantasy sports in today’s society, I don’t know what does!

For the postseason-contending Giants, taking care of a supposed-weaker opponent is critical for them, and it all starts with a productive outing from starter Alex Cobb. In his first start back from the injured list, the 34-year-old’s velocity was about in line with where it had been for the season, and he remains the perfect case study of the flaws of ERA. Sure, his 5.62 ERA isn’t appealing, but unless you think a very high .381 batting average allowed on balls in play (BABIP) or very low 55.6% left-on-base-rate will sustain, why should that matter? At the end of the day, he strikes batters out without walking many back in return (20% K-BB) and has induced a ground ball on over 60% of the batted balls against him. As his 2.92 SIERA indicates, this is a pitcher performing at an elite level.

There are many reasons to trust Cobb against the offense with the fifth-lowest wRC+. Thus, we need to take a leap of faith with Reds starter Graham Ashcraft, who hasn’t missed many bats (13.5% K) in his first six career MLB starts. At the same time, his cutter and sinker lead him to induce a lot of ground balls (56.1%), while he has had no problems with neutralizing free baserunners (5% BB). In the ballpark that limits home runs at the fourth-highest rate, per Baseball Savant, that’s a leap of faith worth making. Perhaps there may be some sweats here, but after some sweet worm burners, we can all sit back and enjoy a smooth first inning.
