National League and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has named his ace, Adam Wainwright, as the starting pitcher in the 2014 All-Star Game.

On the season, Wainwright is 12-4 with a 1.83 ERA as well as three complete games pitched, two of them shutouts.

This is the first time Waino will be making the start in a Midsummer Classic.

Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter and relief pitcher Pat Neshek were also voted onto the NL All-Star roster.

Catcher Yadier Molina was voted as the starting catcher for the NL All-Star team but will not participate due to his thumb injury.

The 2014 All-Star Game will be on July 15th at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

KMOX Sports Director Tom Ackerman is at the press conference and will have more from Minneapolis on KMOX and KMOX.com.
