(CBS) The White Sox may have swept the Rangers, but they lost to Texas in the vote for the final American League All-Star.

Despite a strong “#TakeJake” Twitter campaign Thursday, Jake Peavy lost out to Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish in Major League Baseball’s Final Vote campaign. Cardinals third baseman David Freese won the National League vote.

Darvish beat out Peavy, Jason Hammel of the Orioles, Jonathan Broxton of the Royals and Ernesto Frieri of the Angels, in that order.

Freese beat out (in order) Braves center fielder Michael Bourn, Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper and D-backs second baseman Aaron Hill.
