The Milwaukee Brewers will be well represented at next week’s All-Star Game in Minneapolis.

Center fielder Carlos Gomez and third baseman Aramis Ramirez won the fan voting and were selected as starters for the National League, while the NL’s players added catcher Jonathan Lucroy and closer Francisco Rodriguez to the roster.

It will be the first time four Brewers were picked for an All-Star Game since 2007, when Prince Fielder started at first base and was joined by teammates Francisco Cordero, J.J. Hardy and Ben Sheets.

It also matches a franchise record for most players selected in a single year, matching the four that were picked in 1980 (Cecil Cooper, Paul Molitor, Ben Oglivie, Robin Yount), 1982 (Cooper, Rollie Fingers, Oglivie, Yount) and 1983 (Cooper, Oglivie, Ted Simmons, Yount).
