The National League will try to turn things around on Tuesday in the MLB All-Star Game, looking to snap an American League four-game winning streak in the Midsummer Classic.
Fox will televise the 88th MLB All-Star Game at 8 p.m. ET, with a pregame show beginning at 7:30 p.m. and online streaming provided by Fox Sports Go.
The NL still leads the all-time series, but the margin is razor slim, at just 43-42-2 dating back to 1933. One more American League win and things are all even, which seemed impossible two decades ago.
From 1996-2009, the American League won 12 consecutive All-Star Game decisions, with a tie in 2002 mixed in. The NL got things back in order with three straight victories from 2010-12, but the AL struck back with victories in the last four years.
The National League is the home team on Tuesday, with the Miami Marlins hosting. The Marlins are represented by a pair of outfielders in the Midsummer Classic, with starter Marcell Ozuna and slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
The reigning champion Chicago Cubs, winners of 103 games in 2016, have just one All-Star in what been a disappointing 2017 so far. The club’s closer, Wade Davis, is the lone Cubs player in Miami, though the National League will be managed by Cubs manager Joe Maddon.
Poor Joe Mauer. If you forget that he’s a first baseman and just pretend he’s a Mls Cheap Jerseys catcher, his deal is bad instead of one of the outright worst in the game. He is a first baseman and Miami Dolphins Cheap Jerseys designated hitter, though, so the 103 OPS+ he’s put up over the last four seasons really isn’t cutting it, especially not at an average of $23 million per year.
