Dodgers' Justin Turner Wins All-Star Game Final Vote in Record Fashion

Dodgers' Justin Turner Wins All-Star Game Final Vote in Record Fashion

For the second time in three seasons, fans voted for Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas as the final American League All-Star.

Moustakas got 15.6 million votes.

Turner is hitting.384/.473/.571 with 17 doubles and eight home runs in 61 games this season, leading the National League in batting average and on-base percentage.

Miami Marlins first baseman Justin Bour finished last in the NL tally, so he will stick to the Home Run Derby Monday and have Tuesday off.

Moustakas defeated shortstops Xander Bogaerts, Didi Gregorius and Elvis Andrus, and Tampa Bay first baseman Logan Morrison.

This marks the first time in Turner's career he's punched a ticket to the All-Star Game.

White House pays women 80 cents for every dollar paid to men
More than 40 percent of White House staffers earn in excess of $100,000 a year, according to new salary details released Friday. Half the men working at the White House make $115,000 or more annually, while half the women $70,629 or less.

Turner's addition gives the Dodgers five All-Stars, along with Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger Clayton Kershaw, and Kenley Jansen.

A replacement hasn't been named for Kershaw (13-2).

The main event takes place the following night with the 88th edition of the MLB All-Star Game. He'll cover first base and will be reunited with his former crew chief, Joe West, who will work home plate. The replay umpire will be Doug Eddings. Join the KC Kingdom team!

Schwarber went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

"I'm worried about pitching, I'm worried about recovery, I'm worried about what I have to do to be successful", Verlander said as multiple reports linked the Tigers and Cubs on trade talk centered around the veteran right-hander.
