Chris Sale, 27, of the Chicago White Sox was named as the American League starting pitcher, per CBS Sports. Chris leads the league with 14 wins and 123 strikeouts. On the National League side, Johnny Cueto, 30, of the San Francisco Padres will kick things off. Clayton Kershaw, 28, of the Los Angeles Dodgers would have also been been a great starter, but he was recently put on the DL due to back issues. Madison Bumgarner, 26, was supposed to play but since he started in the July 10 game, he’ll sit out the All-Star game, giving his spot to teammate Bartolo Colon, 43.
When it comes to swinging the pine, the American League has hitters like David Ortiz, 40, Edwin Encarnacion, 33, Mark Trumbo, 30, and Robinson Cano, 33, to light up the scoreboard. The National League side had Wil Myers, 25, Adam Duvall, 27, Carlos Gonzalez, 30, and more to whack it out of Petco Park. However, the National League will need all the firepower they can get. The AL side is currently 15-4-1 in the last 20 All-Star Games.
However, the National League has as much as a chance to pull of a victory as the American League, according to Yahoo Sports. Will this give the NL a bump when it comes to the Fall Classic in October? Or will the AL prove why they’ve dominated the All-Star Game for the past two decades?
Who do you want to win this game, HollywoodLifers? The American League or the National League?
