New York Mets right-hander Matt Harvey and Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer are expected to start for their respective leagues in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, scheduled for Tuesday night, at Citi Field in New York.

The 23-year old Harvey, who was named National League Pitcher of the Month in April, is currently 7-2, with a 2.35 ERA., along with a league-leading 147 strikeouts.

Harvey is set to become only the third pitcher in history to start an MLB All-Star Game in their home ball park, joining the New York Giants’ Carl Hubbell in 1934, and Esteban Loaiza, of the Chicago White Sox, in 2003.

Scherzer, who won his first 13 starts this year, before dropping his first decision of the season, on Saturday, to the Texas Rangers, is tied for the MLB lead with those 13 wins, along with a 3.19 ERA.

The 28-year old, who has recorded double-digit wins for four-consecutive years, will be making his first All-Star appearance.

The National League, which has won the last three games, leads the all-times series, 43-38-2.

The winning team secures home field advantage for their league representative in the 2013 World Series.
