Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino and White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko have been elected to the All-Star team by online fan voting.

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 Andre Ethier of the Dodgers, Todd Helton of the Rockies, Mike Morse of the Nationals 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.

Konerko is batting .319 with 22 homers and 64 RBIs this season.

The voting results were announced on Thursday.
