Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez beat out Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the Final Vote for the National League All-Star team, but Kershaw is headed to Cincinnati anyway …

Kershaw is replacing Max Scherzer, who won’t be eligible to pitch Tuesday because he is starting for the Nationals in Sunday’s series finale against the Orioles. Kershaw, the reigning MVP and Cy Young Award winner in the National League, has a 2.85 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 160 strikeouts in 123 innings this season.
