There's about to be a Philadelphia takeover in Texas later this month!

The Phillies have been unveiled as three of the four National League infielders as part of the official lineup for the MLB All-Star Game.

Bryce Harper will take first base with Trea Turner at shortstop and Alec Bohm on third for the July 16 game in Arlington, Texas.


Edmundo Sosa, Whit Merrifield with RBIs in two-run 8th, Phillies top Cubs 5-3

Edmundo Sosa broke a tie with a sacrifice fly in the eighth, Whit Merrifield followed with an RBI single and the Philadelphia Phillies topped the struggling Chicago Cubs 5-3.

This is Bohm's first career selection, with Harper racking up his 8th and Turner playing for a third time.

The rest of the all-star roster will be revealed on Sunday.

Philadelphia last had three elected infielders in 1982, with Pete Rose, Mike Schmidt and Manny Trillo.
