All-Star Game

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton received a record 11,073,744 votes to start the July 10 All-Star Game in Kansas City. Meanwhile, an apparent late surge from Giants fans not only made San Francisco catcher Buster Posey a starter and the National League's leading vote-getter, but also catapulted third baseman Pablo Sandoval and outfielder Melky Cabrera into the starting lineup.
