78th Annual MLB All-Star Game: National League vs. American League
Game Time – 7:00pm C.T. FOX, XM Radio Channel 176 and 174
Location – AT & T Park, San Francisco

Jake Peavy (9-3, 2.19/1.06) vs. Dan Haren (10-3, 2.30/1.00)

The first pitch of the 78th Mid-Summer Classic is scheduled to take place around 7:25pm C.T. as the National League attempts to end the recent dominance of the American League. The Senior Circuit has lost 9 in a row and including the tie that took place in Milwaukee in 2002, the NL has not won an All-Star game since 1996 and have lost 15 of the last 18. Tony LaRussa will look to end the draught against Jim Leyland and the powerful AL lineup.

Tonight will be the first time the All-Star game has been played in San Francisco since 1984. Derrek Lee and Alfonso Soriano will represent the Chicago Cubs and Soriano won the All-Star game MVP award in 2004 while a member of the Texas Rangers.
