Segura, who made the NL All-Star squad in 2013 with Milwaukee, is the first Seattle player to win the fan voting for the final spot.

The Red Sox launched a #VoteBenny campaign, spearheaded by 2015 All-Star and Benintendi's teammate Brock Holt. His vote total marked the second-highest total ever in a Final Vote, behind only Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers (20.8 million in 2017). Segura entered play Wednesday in the majors with a.329 batting average and second in hits (116), trailing only reigning AL MVP Jose Altuve (124).

Heading into today's action, Aguilar is hitting.302/.369/.631 with 23 homers on the year, leading the National League in slugging, OPS and home runs.

Republicans, meanwhile, hope centrist Democrats running for re-election in conservative-leaning states will back Kavanaugh. As GOP Senate leader, McConnell, R-Ky., is the master kingmaker who will champion Kavanaugh's nomination on the floor.


Major League Baseball released the results of online balloting for the last slot in each league Wednesday night, with Aguilar drawing 20.2 million votes to secure his first All-Star selection. The 28-year-old native of the Dominican Republic was followed in the AL Final Vote by Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox, Giancarlo Stanton of the New York Yankees, Eddie Rosario of the Minnesota Twins and Andrelton Simmons of the Los Angeles Angels. He will join Mariners teammates Nelson Cruz, Edwin Diaz and Mitch Haniger at the All-Star Game.

Nationals Parks in Washington, D.C., will host the 2018 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Segura is having a wildly successful season for a talented Mariners team that is in the hunt for first place in the American League West.
