Standout Stats

The American League outscored the National League 28-15 during that interval and has won the last six all-star games. The AL is 6-0 ATS through this winning streak.
Since 2008, the total has gone UNDER in eight of those 11 games with an average combined score of 6.82. Only 1 game over that span featured more than 10 runs.
The two pitchers are very likely to throw two or an inning before turning it on to a bullpens. I give the advantage to the NL up to arms move together with the likes of Mike Soroka (ATL), Jacob deGrom (NYM), Max Scherzer (WSN) and Clayton Kershaw (LAD) coming after Hyun-Jin Ryu gets relieved.
The AL bullpen has some elite arms on with Verlander beginning, to be followed in some order by Gerrit Cole (HOU), Lucas Giolito (CWS) and Jose Berrios (MIN). Following that, I believe the AL team is not quite as striking as the NL’s.
As there is lots of power both one of the starters and reservations whereas the AL lineup is head and shoulders above its bench reservations I give the nod to the NL bats. Both starting lineups have both first-time all-stars: Ketel Marte (ARI) and Ronald Acuna (ATL) for the National League, and Carlos Santana (CLE) and Jorge Polanco (MIN) for the American League.
With the game happening in Progressive Field, the National League will have a DH and a good deal of choices such as rookie Pete Alonso (NYM), that wasn’t chosen as the starting first baseman over Freddie Freeman (ATL).
