MLB All-Star Game 2011: Troy Tulowitzki Hits 8th In NL Lineup

The starting lineups for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game have been announced on Monday morning. Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, starting in place of injured Mets shortstop Jose Reyes, will bat eight for the National League All-Stars. Here is the complete NL lineup:

2B Rickie Weeks
DH Carlos Beltran
CF Matt Kemp
1B Prince Fielder
C Brian McCann
RF Lance Berkman
LF Matt Holliday
SS Troy Tulowitzki
3B Scott Rolen

Roy Halladay will be the starter for the National League team. Here is the AL lineup:

CF Curtis Granderson
SS Asdrubal Cabrera
1B Adrian Gonzalez
RF Jose Bautista
LF Josh Hamilton
3B Adrian Beltre
DH David Ortiz
2B Robinson Cano
C Alex Avila

Those are two strong lineups even with the injuries and no-participants. With Cano and Tulowitzki batting eighth for their respective lineups, there's plenty of power at the back end of these teams. But this game will likely come down to which reserves are able to put up the better mid-game performances.

The 2011 Midsummer Classic is scheduled to begin around 6:00 p.m. MT.
