New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale and Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo are headed to the 2014 All-Star Game after winning the online fan vote.

The results were announced Thursday.

Rizzo received 8.8 million votes to hold off both Colorado's Justin Morneau and Atlanta's Justin Upton and become the first Cubs player to win the Final Vote.

He is batting .277 with 20 home runs and 49 RBI in 90 games this season.

Sale is the fourth White Sox player to win the Final Vote after collecting 6.7 million votes. He joins Scott Podsednik (2005), A.J. Pierzynski (2006) and Paul Konerko (2011) after surviving a late charge from Angels pitcher Garrett Richards.

The Chicago left-hander is 8-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 14 starts this season.
