Game 1: Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves, 7:20 p.m. EST – First Inning Total Runs: 0 Runs (+100)

Max Fried, who currently owns a 3-0 record and 1.38 ERA, will start for the Braves on Friday and the Rockies have been one of the worst first-inning teams in MLB this season. Colorado has scored a first-inning run in just three of their 25 games on the year. Meanwhile, Atlanta has scored in the first inning in two of its last five games.

Game 2: New York Yankees vs. San Francisco Giants , 10:15 p.m. EST – First Inning Total Runs: 0 Runs (-145)

While the Yankees have been a solid first-inning offense this season, New York has scored in the first inning of just one of its last three games. Despite having already played 25 games this season, the Giants have not scored a single first-inning run in 2019. They've also proven rather stingy on the pitching side of their first frames as well, allowing opponents to score in the first inning in seven of their 25 games this season.
