Like it or not, the All-Star Game tonight at Target Field in Minneapolis will determine whether the winner of the NLCS or the ALCS will hold home-field advantage in the World Series. The AL took last year's game in a bit of a snoozer, winning 3-0.

Freddie Freeman, Craig Kimbrel, and Julio Teherán will represent the Braves on the National League's roster. Teherán pitched on Sunday, so he won't be eligible to play, but both Freeman and Kimbrel figure to get some playing time later in the game.

Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals will start on the mound for the National League, and Félix Hernández of the Seattle Mariners will oppose him for the AL.

The game begins at 8 o'clock on FOX. Starting lineups are below.
