Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Twins vs. Guardians

Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Guardians

Minnesota holds a two-game lead over Cleveland heading into this divisional set. The Twins are looking for their third straight win as they send Sonny Gray to the bump. As for the Guardians, they’ll counter with Triston McKenzie as they try to get back in the win column after being swept by the Red Sox over the weekend. The first pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. ET from Progressive Field in Cleveland, OH. 

Gray gets the nod tonight and will make his 10th start. The right-hander is 3-1 on the year with a 2.53 ERA, and 1.03 WHIP over 42.2 innings pitched. Gray’s coming off a tough outing against the Guardians, where he allowed three earned runs on eight hits over 4.0 innings. 

McKenzie’s been a serviceable piece for the Guardians this year and is a big part of why I consider Cleveland’s pitching staff the deepest in the American League. The right-hander has a 4-5 record with a 3.51 ERA (35th) and 1.01 WHIP (14th) over 13 starts this year. However, he was touched up for six earned runs on nine hits over 4.1 innings against the Twins last week. 

Gray and McKenzie pitched against each other last Wednesday in a game that saw 21 runs (11-10 win for Cleveland). However, even though they didn’t pitch well overall, just one run scored in the first inning. Carlos Correa hit a solo home run off of McKenzie. I think these guys can dial it in and keep a clean first frame tonight in Cleveland. McKenzie has held the Twins to a .203 average over 74 at-bats, including a 1-9 from Byron Buxton. If he can keep Correa in the yard, I think we have an excellent chance to cash this NRFI.
