Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Padres vs. Dodgers
This is a huge four-game series between the Padres and Dodgers this weekend. Los Angeles holds a 1.5-game lead over San Diego coming into the weekend, and this series could have a major impact on the divisional landscape. Game one is set for 10:10 p.m. ET from Dodger Stadium with a pitching matchup featuring Joe Musgrove and Mitch White.
Musgrove has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. The right-hander enters with an 8-1 record to go along with a 2.12 ERA (6th) and 0.95 WHIP (6th) over 13 starts. However, Musgrove’s coming off his worst outing of the year, where he allowed six earned runs on seven hits against the Phillies.
White got moved into the rotation in May, which will be his sixth start of the year and 11th overall appearance. The right-hander has been serviceable, posting a 1-1 record, 4.25 ERA, and 1.15 WHIP. White was last tasked with throwing against the Braves on Saturday and surrendered three earned runs on five hits and a pair of walks. Los Angeles has now lost his last three starts.
Musgrove’s last start was an anomaly, in my opinion. The Cy Young frontrunner hasn’t allowed more than two runs in any prior outing and recorded a quality start in all 12 other starts. Look for him to bounce back tonight in a huge matchup where he can help pick up a game in the division. As for White, he doesn’t have much experience against the Padres in his career; however, he threw 1.0 inning against them earlier this year and held them scoreless. White has allowed just three earned runs over his last 9.0 innings, so let’s take a shot here and say that he keeps a clean first frame. Let’s go with NRFI in this N.L. West showdown.
