Right-hander Tyler Clippard was selected to the National League All-Star team, but he might not be the Nationals' lone representative in Phoenix for the Midsummer Classic on July 12.
First baseman Michael Morse is one of five finalists for the last spot on the NL roster in The Final Vote, where fans get a shot at choosing one more All-Star.
"I think it's great ... I'm excited to be a part of this," said Morse, who leads the Nats with a .299 average, is tied for the team lead with 15 home runs and is second on the club with 46 RBIs in 75 games.
Morse's competition for the final spot is difficult. He's vying with Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, Colorado first baseman Todd Helton, Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy and Philadelphia outfielder Shane Victorino.
Fans can log onto MLB.com and cast an unlimited number of ballots in The Final Vote. Voting closes Thursday at 4 p.m. Eastern time.
"Vote often, vote a lot. ... I want to get there. I want to play in the All-Star Game," said Morse.

An All-Star nod would be nothing short of amazing for the 29-year-old Morse, who came to the Nationals in a trade from Seattle in June 2009, flourished late last season when given a chance to play regularly, started this season as the team's regular left fielder and shifted to first base when free agent Adam LaRoche underwent season-ending shoulder surgery.
Given the plethora of front-line first basemen in the National League - guys like Prince Fielder, Ryan Howard and Joey Votto - Morse is potentially in some elite company.
"It's a great feeling and a great opportunity," he said. "Those are some great names. To be mentioned with those guys is a big honor."
