Jonathan Lucroy had a pair of RBI doubles in Tuesday’s All-Star game loss to the American League.

Lucroy wouldn’t have been in the starting lineup if not for Yadier Molina’s thumb injury, but he wound up being the offensive star for the National League. The Brewers’ backstop doubled in Chase Utley with a double to left in the second and then drove in Dee Gordon with a two-bagger to right in the fourth, which tied the game up at the time. Lucroy’s teammate, Aramis Ramirez, was the only other NL player to record two hits.

While he might not beat out Yadier Molina in the balloting for the starting catcher gig for the NL in the All-Star Game, there's little doubt that he's been one of the league's best players during the first half of the season.

Now batting .335, Lucroy is on pace for 18 homers, 83 RBI and 77 runs.
