Giants’ Brandon Belt loses final All-Star vote to Brewers’ Jesus Aguilar

Brandon Belt addressed the political media after learning he did not win the last-chance All-Star vote and said, “First off, I want to point out that Russia actually interfered with this election.”

Belt stressed he was trying to be lighthearted, but was very serious when he thanked his fans and teammates, and especially the club’s social-media staff, for their efforts to get him to his second All-Star Game.

Even with teammate Derek Holland slathering his body with baby oil and taping another “Ballot Brothers” video with Hunter Pence on Wednesday morning, Belt finished second to Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar. Aguilar received 20.2 million votes.
