Colorado’s Jimenez is 15-1 and NL manager Charlie Manuel is content with his decision. "We have some real talented pitchers on the National League squad," Manuel said. "But this guy is 15-1, his record speaks for itself."
The NL pitching will have to be on point tonight, against the AL’s destructive offense with players such as Robinson Cano, Joe Mauer, Carl Crawford, and Miguel Cabrera to name a few. David Price will start for the American League, followed by John Lester and Phil Hughes. The AL will be without New York’s historic closer Mariano Rivera, due to an injury.
Both teams will playing for home field advantage at the World Series. American League manager, Joe Girardi, knows the importance of winning home field advantage, after the Yankees latest championship last year.
"As far as the importance of the game, I think it's extremely important," Girardi said. "We were the recipients of home-field advantage last year, and I know it only matters for the World Series, but in our home games during the playoffs, we were 7-1.”
