Redbirds boast three starters for NL All-Stars
Tuesday, July 6, 2004
NEW YORK -- Three St. Louis Cardinals infielders were elected to start for the National League in the fan voting for the All-Star game which was released on Sunday.
Third baseman Scott Rolen was the top NL vote-getter at 3.19 million and was joined by first baseman Albert Pujols and shortstop Edgar Renteria, who finished 214,000 votes ahead of Houston's Adam Everett. Last week, Renteria led by just six votes.
Houston Astros second baseman Jeff Kent and New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza will make up the remainder of the National League starting infield. Barry Bonds, Ken Griffey Jr. and Sammy Sosa were elected to start in the NL outfield start.
