The three Milwaukee Brewer starters will bring up the bottom of the National League lineup when Major League Baseball’s All-Star
game is played tonight at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Aramis Ramirez will bat sixth, catcher Jonathan Lucroy will hit eighth and center fielder Carlos Gomez will hit ninth for the National League. Gomez will also be playing left field tonight. Center field belongs to Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen.
Former Brewer and current St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced his lineup yesterday. He selected his own ace pitcher, Adam Wainwright, over Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw is considered by many to be the best pitcher in all of baseball.
Wainwright enters the game tonight with a 12-4 record and a 1.83 ERA. Kershaw is 11-2 with a 1.78 ERA. Kershaw also has a no-hitter under his belt this season, plus 41 consecutive scoreless innings.
The fourth Milwaukee Brewer on the National League roster is closer Francisco Rodriguez.
