The Washington Nationals’ surprise star of the season – Michael Morse – did not win the final vote for the All-Star team.

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino won the online fan voting for the final spot on the National League roster. Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko was elected to the American League team.

Victorino also was elected in baseball's “final vote” in 2009, when he got a record 15.9 million votes. This year, he received 9.2 million and beat out Morse, Andre Ethier of the Dodgers, Todd Helton of the Rockies, and Ian Kennedy of the Diamondbacks.

Konerko beat Detroit's Victor Martinez, Kansas City's Alex Gordon, Baltimore's Adam Jones and Tampa Bay's Ben Zobrist, receiving 8.4 million votes.
