What channel is the MLB All-Star Game on today? Time, lineups for 2021 AL vs. NL game

His performance in Monday night’s Home Run Derby might have disappointed some fans, but Angels star Shohei Ohtani has another chance to thrill them in Colorado on Tuesday.

Ohtani will be the starting pitcher for the American League in the 2021 MLB All-Star Game. Oh yeah, and he’ll also lead off as the team’s designated hitter and get a second chance to hit even after he leaves the game as pitcher.

But the National League shouldn’t be dismissed, as it is bringing plenty of firepower. Max Scherzer will get the start, and 22-year-old shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. will lead off for the NL.

The American League is looking to make it eight straight wins in the All-Star Game, which would be the most since the National League won a record 11 straight from 1972 to 1982. The AL last won seven in a row from 2003 through 2009. The only thing that prevented a 13-year winning streak was a tie in 2002 that followed a five-year run of wins by the AL.

Below is a rundown on how to watch the MLB All-Star Game, plus starting lineups and bench units for both sides.
