Can't Predict Baseball: All Star Game Rematch In 2013

Major League Baseball has been around for over 100 years now but only once in the history of the games have we seen an All Star Game rematch, but we were all treated to this in 2013. The All Star Game was played in Citi Field in 2013 and on this day in 2013 the Mets were back home in Citi Field to host the Detroit Tigers.

Both the All Star Game and this game were played at Citi Field with the Mets Matt Harvey on the mound for the home team and facing off with the Tigers Max Scherzer. 

Detroit would win the game 3-0 while Harvey gave up 13 hits in 6.2 innings. After the game Harvey would end up on the disabled list and would ultimately have to go under the knife with Tommy John surgery. Scherzer in the same game would become the third pitcher in the history of baseball to start a season 19-1. 

The other two pitchers to start a season  19-1 were Rube Marquard in 1912 with the New York Giants and Roger Clemens with the 2001 New York Yankees. You know what they say Suzyn, you really can't predict baseball.
