Ubaldo Jimenez, David Price to start All-Star game

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Colorado ace Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the National League in the All-Star game while the AL will counter with Tampa Bay's David Price.

In this year of the pitcher, Jimenez was a fitting pick by Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. The NL will try Tuesday night at Angel Stadium to end a 13-year drought in baseball's midsummer classic. Jimenez is 15-1 with a 2.20 ERA. Price is 12-4 with a 2.42 ERA.

Manuel and AL manager Joe Girardi of the World Series champion New York Yankees made the announcements Monday.
