Phillies receive huge support in NL All-Star voting

Phillies fans are doing their part to get their favorite players to this year’s MLB All-Star Game.

The latest voting results show five Philadelphia regulars in position to start the game: second baseman Chase Utley (the NL’s leading vote-getter), injured shortstop Jimmy Rollins, third baseman Placido Polanco and outfielders Jayson Werth and Shane Victorino.

First baseman Ryan Howard is second to Albert Pujols, and catcher Carlos Ruiz is second to St. Louis’ Yadier Molina.

The only laggard is left fielder Raul Ibanez, who is eighth among outfielders.
