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

San Francisco improved to 55-57 after last night’s 5-3 victory in the series opener. Gabe Kepler gives Logan Webb the nod for tonight’s game while the Pirates opt for Tyler Beede. The first pitch in this N.L. showdown is scheduled for 9:05 p.m. ET from Oracle Park. 

Beede has made 19 total appearances this year, with two of them being starts. The former Giant is 1-1 on the year with a 3.57 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 35.2 innings of work. Most recently, Beede went 3.2 scoreless innings against the Diamondbacks and gave up just two hits and a walk. 

Webb’s putting together another great season as he continues establishing himself as the top man in San Francisco. The right-hander comes into tonight’s game at 10-5 with a 3.17 ERA (23rd) and 1.15 WHIP (30th) over 23 starts. Webb posted a quality start last time out, holding the Athletics to two earned runs on four hits and three walks over 7.0 innings of work. He earned the win, and San Fran moved to 13-10 in his starts this year. 

Webb owns a 3.01 ERA at home this season with 64 punchouts over 71.2 innings pitched. Considering he’s in pretty good form right now, I think he’ll have no issues mowing down this lowly Pittsburgh offense. The Pirates are currently ranked 29th in team batting average (.220) and 28th in OPS (.653). Meanwhile, the Giants aren’t much better as they come in at 24th (.235) and 13th (.713) in those respective categories. I’ll take a flier on Tyler Beede to keep a clean first inning and build off of his scoreless outing against Arizona last time out.
