The Milwaukee Brewers currently own the best record in the National League, and Sunday night four players were rewarded by being named to the All-Star team.

Center fielder Carlos Gomez and third baseman Aramis Ramirez were each voted as starters to the N. L. squad  Both players have been All-Stars in the past, but this will be the first start for either of them.

Catcher Jonathan Lucroy lost a spirited race for the starting spot to Yadier Molina of the St Louis Cardinals, but was selected as a reserve and will make his first All-Star Game appearance.

Closer Francisco Rodriguez is tied for the Major League lead with 27 saves, and was also named to the N. L. squad.

This marks the first time the Brewers have had four players selected to the All-Star team since 2007.

The game will take place Tuesday, July 15th at Target Field in Minneapolis.
