This game might be in a National League park, but the American League will serve as the home team and bat last. They also get to insert J.D. Martinez into the lineup because of the D.H. rule. Just compare these lineup above. There’s no question who has the stacked lineup. Does the N.L. have more dominant pitching? I don’t think so. It’s pretty even to me. I’ll take the slugging American League in this one.

Pick: American League -125
