Votto, Phillips Still Lead All-Star Voting

Votto is trying to become the first Reds player to earn consecutive fan-elected starts since Hall of Fame SS Barry Larkin (1999-2000).
Phillips is trying to become the first Reds second baseman to be voted an All-Star Game start since Joe Morgan did it in 7 consecutive seasons from 1972-78.
