LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez maintained his lead in All-Star voting among National League first basemen, though the lead got smaller, in the second wave of voting results announced on Tuesday.

Gonzalez is atop senior circuit first basemen with 1,380,696 votes, ahead of Paul Goldschmidt of the Diamondbacks (1,067,482), Anthony Rizzo of the Cubs (834,554), Matt Adams of the Cardinals (702,282), and Brandon Belt of the Giants (632,931).

Gonzalez last week led Rizzo by 439,761 votes and Goldschmidt by 448,997 votes. Gonzalez's lead over Goldschmidt is now 313,214 votes.

Gonzalez is a four-time All-Star but last made the midsummer classic in 2011. This season Gonzalez is hitting .339/.415/.611 and leads the majors with 19 doubles. Gonzalez this season ranks third in the National League in batting average, OPS (1.026), wOBA (.434), OPS+ (182) and wRC+ (182), fourth in slugging percentage, hits (61) and runs scored (34), fifth in on-base percentage, seventh in runs batted in (35) and tied for ninth in home runs (10).

The 2015 All-Star Game will be held on Tuesday, July 14 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

Howie Kendrick dropped from third to fourth place at second base with 559,417 votes, trailing Dee Gordon of the Marlins (1,531,048) and Kolten Wong of the Cardinals (1,185,982) and Joe Panik of the Giants (723,564).

Joc Pederson was in sixth place among NL outfielders last week but dropped to 10th with 588,336 votes, 621,772 behind Giancarlo Stanton, who is in third place.

Yasmani Grandal showed up fifth among NL catchers with 396,897 votes, well behind leader Buster Posey of the Giants (1,679,730).
