Posey slides to second in All-Star voting

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (WALB) -

Leesburg native Buster Posey is going to need some more support if he's going to make his second straight All Star Game start.

Major League Baseball announced Monday Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has overtaken Posey as the starting catcher for the 2013 All Star Game after the latest round of voting.

Molina leads the reigning NL MVP by a little over 90,000 votes.

He's led the Giants to two World Series titles in three years.

Voting continues through July 4th. The NL and AL All Star starters will be announced July 6th.
