DEADLINE 3 p.m. today to get Brewers Jesús Aguilar, Twins Eddie Rosario into all-star game
The Milwaukee Brewers have three all-stars … so far.
One of those, Christian Yelich, got some revenge on his old team Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with four RBI in leading Milwaukee to an 8-4 win over Miami.
The Brewers other two all-stars are newcomer Lorenzo Cain in the outfield and second-year player, relief pitcher Josh Hader.
NL-leading Milwaukee could, however, send a fourth player to the July 17 all-star game in D.C. if they get enough fans to help.
As of Tuesday, Jesus Aguilar was leading the fan vote for the final spot on the all-star roster. The Brewers have also combined efforts with the Minnesota Twins to vote catcher Eddie Rosario into the game, stating, “Let’s put the Border Battle aside and have a Border Ballot! Vote Jesús Aguilar and Eddie Rosario to represent the Midwest in the All-Star Game!”

The Brewers and Twins have been asking fans to go to Brewers.com/vote to help the NL home run leader Aguilar and Rosario, who leads the Twins in batting average and home runs, get into the all-star game.
The deadline to vote is 3 p.m. today. And, fans should have plenty of time, since the Brewers are off today before a five-game stint at Pittsburgh beginning Thursday before hitting the all-star break.
