Major League Baseball released an update of National League All-Star voting on Sunday, and a pair of Giants were surpassed for the lead at two positions.
David Wright of the Mets had himself quite a Sunday, with two home runs, a triple and a double in an 8-0 win over the Phillies. Wright also took over the lead at third base, with 2,917,819 votes, over Pablo Sandoval of the Giants, at 2,788,988. Sandoval won the fan balloting in 2012, but Wright was voted the National League starting third baseman in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010.
The All-Star Game will be held at Wright's home park of Citi Field in New York on Tuesday, July 16.
National League catcher has the closest vote in the majors, with Yadier Molina of the Cardinals is the overall NL leader with 3,596,858, a narrow advantage over Buster Posey of the Giants (3,506,402). Molina was voted starter in 2009 and 2010, and is a four-time All-Star, while Posey, the 2012 National League MVP, started at catcher in the 2012 midsummer classic.
In-stadium voting will run through June 28, while online and mobile voting will run through July 4. The All-Star rosters will be announced on Fox on July 6.
