Young Beats Out Zambrano For Final All-Star Spot

The San Diego Padres' right-hander beat out four other pitchers for the last spot on the N-L All-Star team today in the online Final Vote. The 6-foot-10 Young will join teammates Jake Peavy and Trevor Hoffman at Tuesday night's game in San Francisco.

The Padres organization, including Hoffman and Peavy, heavily promoted the online voting that made Young an All-Star for the first time.

Young had been appealing his suspension for his part in a bench-clearing brawl at Chicago on June 16th, which started when Young hit the Cubs' Derrek Lee with a pitch.

Young will sit out the last four games before the break and the first game after it.
