Giants outfielder Hunter Pence came up short in the 2013 All-Star Game Final Vote Thursday afternoon, in which fans selected the final member of the National and American League All-Star rosters from a pool of five players identified by each team's manager.

Among the 10 worthy players, the fans voted Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman and Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar to the 84th MLB All-Star Game.

Pence, 30, finished third in the voting behind Freeman and Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig, who finished second. Puig would have become the first player in MLB history to appear on an All-Star roster having played in fewer than 40 major league games.

Pence, who is currently in a 3-for-36 slump, is batting .264 with 13 home runs in 90 games for the Giants this year. After earning $13.8 million on a one-year deal with the Giants, Pence is scheduled to become a free agent at season's end.
