Jean Segura, Jesus Aguilar win MLB Final Vote

Jean Segura, Jesus Aguilar win MLB Final Vote

Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi is second behind Mariners infielder Jean Segura in All-Star Game Final Vote balloting.

"The Red Sox' "#VoteBenny" campaign has come up short.

Stanton lost the American League Fan Vote on Wednesday, Major League Baseball announced. No totals were given for Benintendi.

Aguilar beat out San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt, Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy, Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner and St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter to earn his first career All-Star nod. Segura, who made the NL All-Star squad in 2013 with Milwaukee, is the first Seattle player to win the fan voting for the final spot. He will join Mariners teammates Nelson Cruz, Edwin Diaz and Mitch Haniger at the All-Star Game.

His last World Cup, says Dalic
Yet many said that they were proud of England's progress through the championship despite the painful 2-1 loss in extra-time. Football was all set to come home. "If we win I really want to be there, but I just can't afford the prices being quoted".

The 28-year-old Seattle shortstop was batting.329 and ranked second in the majors with 116 hits.

Aguilar, 28, entered Wednesday night hitting.302 with the National League lead in home runs (23), slugging percentage (.631) and OPS (1.000) for the 55-37 Brewers. Now in its 17 season, the All-Star Final Vote has recorded over 845 million votes. As we've seen in years past, there tends to be a lot of roster shuffling that goes on between the Final Vote announcement and the All-Star Game itself due to injury issues or other reasons.

Aguilar is now an All-Star for the first time. It's also well deserved after Segura's superb first half helped to anchor the Mariners infield and offense.
