Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Yankees vs. Cardinals

The Cardinals look to break out the brooms this afternoon as they go for their third straight win over the Yankees and seventh straight overall victory. Adam Wainwright gets the nod for the Red Birds while the Bombers counter with Frankie Montas in his first start in pinstripes. The first pitch is slated for 2:15 p.m. ET from Busch Stadium. 

Montas obviously pitched well enough this year to keep his trade value high and punch a ticket out of Oakland. The right-hander came over to New York at the deadline and enters today’s game with a 3.18 ERA and 1.14 WHIP on the year. Montas pitched on Tuesday against the Astros and allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and three walks over 5.0 innings of work. 

Wainwright continues to put up a fight against Father Time and earn a spot in the Cardinals’ starting rotation. The 40-year-old righty comes into today’s game at 8-8 with a 3.11 ERA (22nd), and 1.19 WHIP (39th) in 21 starts this year. Waino’s coming off of 7.0 innings of scoreless baseball against the Cubs on Tuesday. He allowed six hits while striking out four in the winning effort. 

Wainwright has been dominant over his last two starts. He’s allowed just one earned run over 14.0 innings and hasn’t issued a free pass. Furthermore, he’s posted a 1.79 ERA, and 1.06 WHIP in 10 home starts this year. As for Montas, it’s tough to say how he’ll fare in his first start with the Yankees. My guess is that he’ll bring his best stuff as he looks to help guide the Yankees to a deep playoff run. The only head-to-head numbers that we have are Nolan Arenado going 0-4 (.000) against him while Paul Goldschmidt is 1-2 (.500) and Albert Pujols is 3-8 (.375). I think we’re in for another low-scoring affair at Busch Stadium this afternoon.
