Advertiser News Services

Maui's Shane Victorino of the Philadelphia Phillies is running fourth in the National League All-Star balloting among outfielders.

Milwaukee's Ryan Braun leads with 693,460 votes, Phillies teammates Jayson Werth follows with 629,894 and Andre Ethier of the Dodgers is third with 606,514. Victorino, who was third in the first vote count released last week, had 566,434 votes as of Wednesday.

Braun has started in the outfield for the N.L. in each of the last two seasons. Werth made his first All-Star team in 2009, while Victorino led all vote-getters in the 2009 All-Star Game Sprint Final Vote to claim his first All-Star spot.

The 81st All-Star Game will be played July 13 at Angel Stadium.

In addition to voting in ballparks, fans may cast their votes for starters up to 25 times with the 2010 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot available at MLB.com and all 30 Club Web sites.
