Game 1: Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies – First Inning Total: 0 Runs (-110), 8:40 p.m. EST

The Rockies have been one of the worst first-inning offenses in MLB this season, scoring a first-inning run in just three of their 23 games this season. If the Nationals follow suit against Rockies' starter Jeff Hoffman, a right-hander making his season debut tonight, then we could see zero runs scored in the first inning of this evening's contest.

Game 2: Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres – First Inning Total: 0 Runs (-110), 10:10 p.m. EST

While Seattle has proven one of the best offensive clubs over a full nine innings this season, the Mariners are scoring in just 40 percent of their first innings this year. Seattle has also held its opponents to a 32 percent clip when it comes to scoring in the first inning of games so far this season.
