BOSTON -- In-stadium balloting for the 2014 All-Star Game ended at Fenway Park on Wednesday before the Red Sox headed west for a seven-game road trip, so fans will only be able to vote Boston's contenders into the Midsummer Classic online.
David Ortiz was second among American League designated hitters as of Monday, trailing Baltimore's Nelson Cruz by about 450,000 votes. Dustin Pedroia was third among second basemen and A.J. Pierzynski sat in fourth for catchers, although leading vote-getter Matt Wieters will have season-ending Tommy John surgery.
