Brown, Lee Make NL All-Star Team

Domonic BrownDomonic Brown has been best the best story for the Phillies this season, and today he got a nice little reward for it.

He made his first National League All-Star team.

Left-hander Cliff Lee has earned his fourth trip to the Midsummer’s Classic.

The All-Star Game rosters were announced Saturday evening and the Phillies have two players headed to Citi Field to compete against the American League on July 16. Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon, who is 2-0 with a 1.87 ERA and 18 saves in 22 opportunities, did not get a spot.

Brown was a no-brainer. He is hitting .279 with 14 doubles, three triples, 22 home runs, 60 RBIs. He is second in the league in home runs, third in total bases (175), fifth in RBIs and slugging percentage (.549) and sixth in extra-base hits (39).

“I think when he came up, he had to learn what Major League Baseball was all about, and how we go about things,” Charlie Manuel said before the announcement. “And I think he’s been around some good people, (hitting coaches) Steve Henderson and Wally Joyner, as far as his hitting goes, and I think he’s communicated with some of those guys to learn what Major League Baseball is all about. Some of the guys on the team, (Ryan) Howard and some of those guys definitely helped him. He’s come a long ways.”

Lee is 10-2 with a 2.73 ERA in 18 starts. He is tied for third in the league in wins and tied for 10th in ERA.

First place Atlanta attendance to date – 31,000 per game. Struggling Phillies attendance to date – 39,000 per game.
