The Final Vote has ended. Soon we will learn who won the last roster spots for the 88th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard.

The results of the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote will be revealed on MLB Tonight, live on MLB Network and MLB.com, at 6 p.m. ET.

At the start of the day, Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas and Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner remained atop their respective league races for the third straight day, combining for more than 30 million votes. If he wins, Moustakas would join Shane Victorino as the only two-time Final Vote winners. The balloting, held exclusively online via MLB.com and the individual club sites, closed at 4 p.m.

In its 16th season, with more than 680 million votes cast, the Final Vote again included social-media votes on the last day of balloting, as Twitter support for the 10 candidates over the final six hours of balloting counted toward vote totals. Any tweet that included a designated player hashtag was tabulated as part of the official vote total used to determine the winners.

The last day of voting in the Final Vote historically has seen impassioned activity and creative campaigning, leading to late-stage runs at the overall leaders. As of 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, the standings remained the same as they were on Wednesday, meaning that Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant and Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, both of whom started in the infield in last year's Midsummer Classic in San Diego, were still in second place.

Turner, whose .384 batting average continues to boggle the mind, was followed in order by Bryant, Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon, Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds and Marlins first baseman Justin Bour.

In the American League, Moustakas, who added to his career-high total with his 25th homer on Wednesday, was followed in order by Bogaerts, Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius, Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus and Rays first baseman Logan Morrison.

Last year's Final Vote winners were first baseman Brandon Belt (Giants) and left fielder Michael Saunders (Blue Jays).
