Our first custom NRFI selection for today features Kansas City Royals veteran Zack Greinke.

This season, Greinke has been in top form, holding a remarkable 17-3 NRFI record with a perfect 10-0 home NRFI split. That makes him an immaculate 22-0 to the NRFI when pitching at home since 2022.

In the past, Greinke has displayed his prowess against the Mets' hitters, with Tommy Pham going 3-for-20, Francisco Lindor going 1-for-3 and Daniel Vogelbach going 0-for-3.

Additionally to Greinke's advantage, the Mets have struggled in the first inning, managing just five hits in their last 35 plate appearances, which has resulted in a .161 batting average.

Notably, leadoff hitter Brandon Nimmo is currently in the middle of a slump, owning a mere .136 average in his last 22 plate appearances.

Our second custom NRFI selection today highlights  NL Cy Young candidate Zac Gallen.

This season, Gallen has been exceptional, holding an 18-4 NRFI record that brings his overall NRFI record to an impressive 44-8 since 2022.

Gallen has also displayed impressive stats against the Giants' hitters, with Wilmer Flores going 2-for-13, Joc Pederson going 2-for-18, LaMonte Wade Jr. going 2-for-17, Brandon Crawford going 2-for-19 and J.D. Davis going 0-for-5.

Davis is currently experiencing a slump, achieving only six hits in his last 37 at-bats for a .162 average.

Also to Gallen's advantage, in the month of July the Giants were one of the worst first-inning hitting teams in baseball, mustering only 17 hits in 98 plate appearances. That resulted in a .193 first-inning batting average.

This custom NRFI selection is -123 on DraftKings.

As always, six outs to glory.
