Game often makes for classic moments that have created a plethora of memories for baseball fans over the years.The big names who have starred in this game begin with Babe Ruth and include Joe DiMaggio Matt Harvey Jersey , Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Pete Rose, Fred Lynn, Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Trout.Trout, with two All-Star Most Valuable Player awards on his resume with the Los Angeles Angels, will anchor the American League lineup once again. That league has an opportunity to move into the lead in the all-time series if it can win Tuesday night's game at Nationals Park in Washington D.C.The American League has dominated the series over the short term and the long term. The Junior Circuit has won the last five games, and it is 23-6-1 since 1988. The overall series is tied 43-43-2.2018 MLB All-Star Game InformationDate:Tuesday, July 17Time:8 p.m. ETTV:Fox RostersAmerican LeagueStartersWilson Ramos, C, Tampa Bay*Jose Abreu, 1B.

Betts is leading both leagues with his .362 batting average, and he has hammered 23 home runs and driven in 51 runs. Betts is also 17-of-19 on stolen base attempts and he is a brilliant right fielder. Teammate J.D. Martinez is tied for the major league lead with 29 home runs and he has a .330/.392/.648 slash line.Jose Ramirez of the Cleveland Indians is tied with Martinez for the home run lead, while Jose Altuve of the defending World Series champion Houston Astros will most likely set the tone for the American League from the leadoff spot. Altuve has put together a .335/.398/.475 slash line.Manny Machado will play shortstop for the American League and has been having a brilliant year for the moribund Baltimore Orioles a .313 average, 23 homers and 64 RBI.The other big-name superstar in the American League starting lineup is Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees, who has launched 25 home runs and driven in 60 runs.The National League does not have the star power depth of the American League, but the senior circuit may have the game's most exciting player in second baseman Javier Baez of the Chicago Cubs. He is one of the most exciting defensive players in the history of the game because of his range and flair, and he has been explosive with the bat this season.Baez has blasted 19 homers and driven in 71 runs, and he has a .293/.328/.571 slash line. He is a free swinger who has shown he can come up with big hits at key moments.Freddie Freeman of the Atlanta Braves has one of the sweetest swings in the game and is a consistent producer with a .315/.404/.532 slash line.The biggest problem for the National League may be with their headline player Bryce Harper. With the game in his home stadium, Harper has been having a hugely disappointing season. While he has hit 23 homers and knocked in 54 runs, he is hitting just .214 and his Nationals have been slumping badly.The key players coming off the bench are shortstop Francisco Lindor of the Indians, outfielder George Springer of the Astros and his teammate third baseman Alex Bregman for the American League. Top National League reserves include first baseman Paul Goldschmidt of the Arizona Diamondbacks George Foster Jersey , shortstop Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies and outfielder Lorenzo Cain of the Milwaukee Brewers.Chris Sale of the Red Sox has started the last two All-Star Games for the American League, and he is on a brilliant roll with five straight starts that have included 11 strikeouts or more while walking one batter or less. He has already fanned 188 hitters while issuing just 31 walks.Gerrit Cole of the Astros and Luis Severino are the American League's top starting pitchers in addition to Sale. Closers Craig Kimbrel of the Red Sox, Edwin Diaz of the Seattle Mariners and Blake Treinen of the Oakland A's will handle the final innings for the American League since fireballing Aroldis Chapman of the Yankees is not participating.Max Scherzer of the Nationals is the likely starting pitcher for the National League since the game is in his home stadium. He is 12-5 with a 2.41 earned-run average and 182 strikeouts. Kenley Jansen of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Brad Hand of the San Diego Padres will likely close for the National League if the senior circuit has a late lead.Statistics are courtesy of MLB.comas of July 15 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Max Kepler saw a lot of pitches Friday night, and it paid off Saturday night.Kepler had three hits, including a two-run homer that put Minnesota ahead to stay, and Jose Berrios threw seven sharp innings to help the Twins to an 8-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals.Kepler went 3 for 3 with a walk and scored twice. He walked three times in Minnesota’s 6-4 victory in the series opener.“The more pitches you see in an at-bat, the better you start to see the ball with time, and I think we’re doing that pretty well as a team right now,” he said. “I hit some line drives and ground balls that some nights can be caught. Today, luckily they find holes.”Eddie Rosario and Logan Morrison also homered as the Twins won their second straight against the Royals.“We don’t want guys to try to step up and be supermen,” manager Paul Molitor said of his offense coming alive. “It’s just understand that you go out there and bring what you can bring.”Berrios (11-8) retired his first six batters, but had trouble throwing strikes in his middle innings and allowed the Royals to take a 2-1 lead after walking the bases loaded in the third. The All-Star right-hander settled down and remained unbeaten against AL Central opponents this season.“Seven innings didn’t look very likely after he gave up those couple, but he got it done,” Molitor said. “And thankfully, the bats came alive.”The Twins regained the lead on Kepler’s homer off Burch Smith (1-3) in the fourth. Rosario added a sacrifice fly in the fifth, and Logan Forsythe and Bobby Wilson each drove in a run in the sixth.“I still felt pretty good,” Smith said. “They just capitalized on mistakes. I didn’t make a pitch, and they hit it. It’s a good-hitting team.Morrison added his 15th homer in seventh, a towering two-run shot off Glenn Sparkman that traveled an estimated 442 feet before landing in the right-field concourse.SMITH’S STARTSmith was charged with a season-high six runs in five-plus innings in his fifth start of the year. Manager Ned Yost still said Smith threw the ball well.“He started laboring in the sixth inning after about the 80-pitch mark, 85-pitch mark. Up until that point, I thought he did a good job of keeping us in the game and throwing strikes,” Yost said.DRAKE THE JOURNEYMANMinnesota’s Addison Reed and Oliver Drake combined for two innings of scoreless relief. Drake, claimed off waivers from Toronto on Friday, set a major league record by pitching for his fifth team this season. He arrived at the ballpark on Saturday afternoon and said he appreciated the chance to get right to work.“I think my catch partner though the whole time has been a fence post back home, so it’s just nice to get back out there playing baseball, throwing to hitters, competing,” Drake said.And the record?“It’s definitely cool having all the jerseys,” he said smiling. “That’s going to be something that looking back it’s going to be a cool collection. I don’t know if this is something I’ll brag about, but it’ll definitely be a neat story.”TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: Molitor said RHP Aaron Slegers (shoulder) would begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Saturday night. … RHP Michael Pineda is scheduled to begin his recovery from Tommy John surgery when he starts his rehab assignment with the Florida Gulf Coast on Monday.JOHAN’S CALLThe Twins inducted former ace Johan Santana into the franchise’s hall of fame in a pregame ceremony. Santana, who won two AL Cy Young Awards during his eight seasons in Minnesota, became the 31st member of the Twins Hall of Fame. For five seasons, from 2003-07, he led the AL in wins (82), strikeouts (1,152), ERA (2.92) and opponent batting average (.212).Surrounded by family and former teammates, Santana was introduced by former teammate Torii Hunter before being presented with a Twins blazer by Rod Carew.“Go chase your dreams, work hard, be passionate about what you do. Have fun and never give up, and good things will happen to you,” Santana told the crowd.UP NEXTRoyals: LHP Danny Duffy (7-9) will make his 24th start of the season Sunday. After posting a 6.88 ERA in his first 10 starts, he has a 3.00 ERA since May 24, the fourth-lowest in the AL in that stretch.Twins: RHP Ervin Santana (0-0) looks to return to his ace form when makes his third start since returning from the 60-day DL after being sidelined by an injured finger. He has allowed a combined eight earned runs in 10 1/3 innings with six strikeouts this season.
