Cincinnati Reds vs. Baltimore Orioles: YRFI (-135)

Shifting away from the routine “Patrick Corbin Fade,” let’s contemplate doing the same for Luke Weaver every week.

Weaver, the starting pitcher for the Reds, bears a dismal ERA of 6.86, putting him in fourth place for the worst in MLB for starters with a minimum of 60 IP. His xFIP of 4.68 surpasses Corbin’s, and his xERA of 5.36 barely misses Corbin’s 6.42.

Weaver’s performance in the first inning is equally regrettable, with the highest opponent batting average (.424), second-highest OBP (.470) and third-highest SLG% (.712). His 19 runs conceded in the first inning tie for the highest in the MLB.

Kyle Gibson may lead the Orioles in victories, but his performance isn’t stellar. His record stands at 8-5 with a 4.40 ERA. The 4.92 xERA and 4.48 xFIP, per his advanced metrics, are underwhelming compared to the average MLB pitcher.

Considering that both teams rank among the top 11 in wRC+ indicates a high probability of at least one run in the opening inning.

San Diego Padres vs Pittsburgh Pirates: NRFI (-125)

Blake Snell appears to be reverting to his formidable 2018 Cy Young-worthy form. In the past 36 innings, he has conceded a meager two earned runs – a stark 0.50 ERA since mid-May. This stellar performance isn’t due to luck, as he’s kept a batting average to .139 and an xBA to .169 in those 36 innings. His impressive 41% strikeout rate and mere 26% hard-hit rate significantly outperform his season averages. Although there’s a wealth of analytical data illustrating Snell’s substantial improvement, the key takeaway is his drastic control improvement from his April 5.30 ERA.

Facing Snell on Wednesday is a drastically transformed Pirates offense from their April status – for the worse. As of Tuesday, Pittsburgh stood 29th in baseball with a paltry 73 wRC+ in June. A lineup potentially including Ke’Bryan Hayes, Andrew McCutchen, and Connor Joe could result in a swift conclusion to the inning. Both McCutchen (0-for-6) and Joe (1-for-8) have poor track records against Snell.

Mitch Keller has been enjoying his best professional season, with a 3.46 ERA and 3.26 xERA in 16 starts and restricting opponents to a .220 xBA. With his strikeout rate nearing 30% and a career-low walk rate, the 27-year-old has been excelling this season. This includes a solid first inning, where Keller has allowed a mere .207 batting average and a .292 on-base percentage.

He’s managed to keep a clean sheet in the first frame in four out of his last five starts. Given his excellent record at PNC Park – a 2.78 ERA and a .195 batting average against in 45.1 innings – Wednesday’s pitching matchup strongly leans towards NRFI.
