Milwaukee Brewers' Christian Yelich is congratulated after hitting a two-run home run during the fifth inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, June 21, 2019, in Milwaukee.

NEW YORK — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger was the top vote-getter in the major leagues and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout led the AL in the first stage of Major League Baseball's new two-phase fan balloting to determine All-Star Game starters.

Bellinger got 3.69 million votes and finished about 39,000 ahead of Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich, the commissioner's office said Friday. Trout received 3.37 million, well ahead of Houston outfielder George Springer at 2.57 million,

Candidates to start for the July 9 game at Cleveland were narrowed to three at infield positions in each league and AL designated hitter, and nine in the outfield. The remaining contenders will start from zero for phase two, which begins at noon EDT Wednesday and ends at 4 p.m. EDT Thursday.

Texas' Joey Gallo beat Minnesota's Max Kepler by 138 votes for the ninth AL outfield spot, and the Yankees' Gleyber Torres edged Cleveland's Francisco Lindor by fewer than 14,000 votes for the third AL shortstop berth.

The Dodgers' Joc Pederson finished 131,000 votes ahead of Philadelphia's Bryce Harper for the ninth NL outfield berth.

Starters will be announced Thursday night, and reserves and pitchers on June 30.
