At 8 p.m. EDT, the MLB announced the winner of its Final Vote competition, the last chance for an unsung hero or fan favorite player to be voted into the 2018 MLB All-Star Game. The winner of the National League vote, unfortunately, was not the Nationals' Trea Turner. It was Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar. 

In today's tally update, provided by MLB PR, Turner was in fourth of the five NL candidates. The Nationals are now 0-for-8 in sending Final Vote candidates to the ASG. 

Not to be discouraged – the Nats will be well-represented at this year's All-Star game by Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer, and Sean Doolittle. Three players from the host city's team is nothing to sneeze at!

The Nats also posted plenty of smile-worthy gifs as part of the #VoteTrea campaign, so if you're upset you may want to scroll back through the hashtag or rewatch some highlights from Turner's recent awesome stretch.

The 2018 MLB All-Star Game is Tuesday evening at Nationals Park.
