Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Mariners vs. Astros

The ‘Stros broke out the brooms in Seattle last week to start the second half of the season. The divisional foes are back at it for four games this weekend in Houston, with the first pitch set for 8:10 p.m. ET tonight. The pitching matchup should be good, with Logan Gilbert and Jose Urquidy squaring off. 

Gilbert’s been a very reliable option for the M’s this season, posting a 10-4 record with a 2.77 ERA (14th) and 1.15 WHIP (30th) over 20 starts. He was charged with the loss in Saturday’s start against the Astros but allowed just two runs on five hits and a walk over 6.0 innings of work. 

Urquidy pitched in Friday’s game against Seattle and improved to 9-4 in the winning effort. The right-hander lasted 6.0 innings and allowed just one earned run on four hits and a pair of walks. Urduidy comes into tonight’s game with a 3.93 ERA (45th) and 1.23 WHIP (42nd).

These starters had their best stuff when they took the mound last time, so I expect that to carry over for tonight’s action. Additionally, Urquidy sees his ERA drop to 2.63 when throwing at home, and opponents are hitting just .237 against him at Minute Maid Park. As for Gilbert, he’s made three starts against Houston this year and posted three quality starts. His ERA is 2.37 against the Astros, and they’re hitting just .232 against him on the year. Let’s ride with NRFI in this divisional showdown.
