Texas Rangers v Houston Astros

 Carlos Correa and George Springer expanded their margins in All-Star Game voting, increasing the odds the Astros have three players voted in by the fans as starters for the first time in franchise history.

Correa leads Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians by 358,242 votes for most among American League shortstops and Springer paces Indians' Michael Brantley by 175,697 votes for the third spot among outfielders, according to the AL balloting update released Tuesday. If they hold on, both would be playing in the All-Star Game for the first time.

Jose Altuve continues to run away with the vote among AL second basemen en route to what on July 11 in Miami will be his fifth career All-Star Game. Altuve leads Starlin Castro of the New York Yankees by 734,563 votes.
