Pujols and Berkman in ASG

After looking at the starting lineups for the all star game tonight, I thought it was strange that Pujols is batting 4th behind Berkman. Pujols' batting average and OBP are higher than Berkman (.350 and .466 vs. .347 and .443) while Berkman's slugging percentage is higher than Pujols' (.608 vs. .653). It seems to me that since Pujols is more likely to get on base, and Berkman is more likely to hit it out of the park, it makes sense to put Pujols in front of Berkman. Any thoughts as to why Pujols is batting 4th?
