Getting the start for the National League will be Matt Cain from the San Francisco Giants as he will oppose American League 2011 Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander. Matt Cain has pitched brilliantly in his home park in San Francisco and attributed greatly to his season mark of 9-3 in the 2012 campaign with an ERA of 2.62. Cain threw a perfect game on June 13th against the Houston Astros. Verlander earns his first ever start for an All Star Game on Tuesday. His first half numbers are a 9-5 record on the year with an ERA of 2.58. Some may argue the fact that Jered Weaver and Chris Sale may have better numbers AL manager Ron Washington had to consider Verlander’s 24-5 season in 2011 with an ERA of 2.40. In the post steroid era of baseball we have seen pitching dominate the Mid-Summer Classic in recent years. The American League pitching staff looks tough with the likes of Verlander, Sale, Price, Weaver, Jake Peavy and Felix Hernandez likely seeing time on the mound. Would not be surprise if those five hand the ball over to the AL bullpen with a lead in the seventh inning.
