#TargetSale for win

Ed Zurga

After four days of voting, the fans adjudicated the final spot on the AL All-Star team by select the White Sox' Chris Sale in the AL Final Vote.  In previous days, Sale was in fourth place in Twitter votes, but Sox fans did not capitulate or acquiesce.  Sale ended up receiving with more than 6.7 million votes.

Voting was certainly fast and furious at the end.

For those of you reaching for a calculator, that's over 23 million votes in the last six hours.

Chris Sale pitched two perfect innings in last year's All-Star Game for the win with two strikeouts, including this strikeout of Carlos Gonzalez with a filthy slider

This will be the third All-Star appearance for Sale.  He will be joining White Sox teammates Jose Abreu and Alexei Ramirez at the All-Star game who are going to their first All-Star Game
