Sale, Scherzer named All Star starters
Tuesday Jul 11, 2017 12:00am

(MIAMI) – Chris Sale will become the first pitcher to make consecutive All-Star starts representing different teams. The Boston Red Sox ace will start Tuesday night's game for the American League, and Washington's Max Scherzer will open for the National League. Then with the Chicago White Sox, Sale pitched the first inning of last year's game at San Diego and allowed a two-out home run to Kris Bryant. Sale was traded in December for top prospects. Sale will be the 16th pitcher to make consecutive All-Star starts, the first since Arizona's Randy Johnson in 2000-01 and the first in the AL since Toronto's Dave Stieb in 1983-84. Scherzer also will be making his second All-Star start. Then with Detroit, he pitched a perfect inning at New York's Citi Field in 2013, when Sale followed with a pair of 1-2-3 innings and got the win. Scherzer will be the fifth pitcher to start All-Star Games for both leagues, following Vida Blue, Roger Clemens, Roy Halladay and Johnson.
