Baseball’s best players will take the field on Tuesday night at Petco Park in San Diego for the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. Home-field advantage in the World Series is on the line as the American League goes for a fourth straight win over the National League.

The AL starting lineup is dominated by members of the Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals, who make up six of the nine starters. Four Boston players, all of whom are hitting at least .296, were voted in by the fans. Mike Trout and Manny Machado, who might be the leading AL MVP candidates, will hit second and third, respectively.

For the NL, four of the nine starters are Chicago Cubs. That includes Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, who both rank in the top eight in MLB in OPS.

The NL team will be without its best pitchers. Clayton Kershaw, who leads MLB with a 1.79 ERA, is on the disabled list. Madison Bumgarner, who ranks second with a 1.94 ERA, is not available after striking out 14 in a complete-game one-hitter on Sunday.

Matt Carpenter and Yoenis Cespedes rank in the top nine in OPS, but they are unavailable for the game. The AL is only affected by injuries in the bullpen.

Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale and San Francisco Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto are the starting pitchers. Kansas City’s Ned Yost will manage the AL, while the NL is led by Terry Collins of the New York Mets.

Betting Odds: NL -115, AL +105

Prediction: AL over NL, 4-2
