Zack Greinke to Start Tomorrow's All-Star Game for National League

Joc Pederson will bat eighth and play left field in the NL lineup

LOS ANGELES - Earlier today, the 2015 All-Star Game managers, Bruce Bochy of the National League and Ned Yost of the American League, announced their starting lineups for Baseball's 86th Midsummer Classic, to be played on Tuesday at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. The lineups were announced at this afternoon's 2015 All-Star Game Press Conference, which was carried live by MLB Network.

Bochy has chosen Greinke as the NL's starting pitcher. Greinke, a three-time All-Star and the 2009 American League Cy Young Award winner, boasts a Major League best 1.39 ERA at the All-Star break. Greinke (18 GS, 8-2, 123.1 IP, 84 H, 106 SO, 20 BB, 0.84 WHIP, .191 average against) is currently amid a stretch of throwing five consecutive scoreless starts, which comprises a career-high scoreless streak of 35.2 innings. The Florida native has allowed one run or less in 14 of his 18 starts on the season. Greinke, 31, will be the first Dodger hurler to start the All-Star Game since Brad Penny in 2006. Bochy's lineup includes Dodger rookie outfielder Joc Pederson, who will bat eighth and play left field. The Dodgers now have two All-Stars in the starting lineup for the first time since Hideo Nomo and Mike Piazza in 1995.
