Haren, Peavy named All-Star Game startersUpdated: Jul.9, 2007, 1:34 pm EDTSAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Dan Haren will start the All-Star game for the American League just across the bay from his home ballpark in Oakland. The Athletics' ace was picked by AL manager Jim Leyland on Monday to oppose San Diego's Jake Peavy, who will start for Tony La Russa's National League squad in Tuesday night's game. San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds will bat second for the NL squad instead of his usual place in the cleanup spot in the lineup. "We like to get the pitchers attention right away so Barry Bonds is going to hit second," La Russa said. With Barry Zito gone through free agency and Rich Harden unable to stay healthy, Haren has become the ace of Oakland's staff. He took a sub-2.00 ERA into July and is 10-3 with an AL-leading 2.30 ERA at the break.
