FutureStarrAll Star Futures Game 2017 Box Score
New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway was ejected from Monday night's All Star Futures Game for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Laz Diaz.
The 2017 Futures Game was played on July 9th at Marlins Park, site of the 2017 All-Star Game. The United States team won the game, 7-6 over the World team, after taking an early 7-0 lead then seeing the World players claw back that lead, to the point where they had the tying run on base when the game ended. P Brent Honeywell was named the winner of the Larry Doby Award as the game's Most Valuable Player after getting the US team off to a great by muzzling the World's batters over the first two innings.
Michael Kopech, known as the hardest thrower in the minor leagues, lived up to his reputation in the 3rd, retiring the side in order and finishing with a strikeout of minor league teammate 2B Yoan Moncada; he flashed triple digits on the radar gun on a number of pitches on a day where very hard throwers were abundant. The U.S. then added to its lead against another Canadian pitcher, Mike Soroka, as Hoskins was hit by a pitch but was forced out by Senzel. Hoskins advanced to second when Moncada's throw on an attempted double play went wide, and RF Kyle Tucker followed with a double down the left field line to make the score 4-0. Beau Burrows then made it 9 straight outs for the U.S. moundsmen with a perfect top of the 4th, picking up two more K's. Domingo Acevedo was next to pitch for the World, but he was hit hard: Rodgers and SS Nick Gordon led off with back-to-back singles, then CF Lewis Brinson doubled as did Fisher, accounting for three runs before Acevedo had recorded an out. However, he retired the next three batters with no damage other than Fisher stealing third base. Still, it was now 7-0 for the U.S. and the game was looking like a potential blow-out, but it was the World team's turn to get hot. (Source: www.baseball-reference.com)
