Cardinals' Molina Continues To Lead NL All-Star Voting

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina continues to lead the National League in voting for this month's All-Star Game. Molina has nearly 5.1-million votes in the latest tabulations released on Tuesday. Outfielder and St. Louis teammate Carlos Beltran is right behind with just over five-million votes. A little more than 26-thousand votes separate the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez, Braves' Justin Upton and Nationals' Bryce Harper for the final two starting outfield spots. Other positional leaders in the Senior Circuit are Reds first baseman Joey Votto, Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, Mets third baseman David Wright and Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Voting ends Thursday night at midnight. The 84th All-Star Game will be played July 16th at Citi Field in New York.
