The Milwaukee Brewers got a surge in voting for the 2014 All-Star Game over the last week, with Aramis Ramirez overtaking David Wright of the New York Mets for the lead among National League third basemen and Carlos Gomez moving back into the top three among NL outfielders, passing Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins.
Catcher Jonathan Lucroy, meanwhile, shot past Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants into second place among NL catchers. Lucroy still trails Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals by almost 700,000 votes, but has cut more than 400,000 off his deficit over the last week.
They weren’t the only movers as there was apparently a concerted get-out-the-vote effort going on among Brewer fans.
Voting continues at MLB.com until 10:59 p.m. Central on July 3, with the All-Star Game to be played July 15 at Minneapolis’ Target Field.
