The scoring began early, after Mitch Keller got things started for the US team by pitching a perfect 1st inning. In the bottom of the 1st, 2B Brendan Rodgers doubled off Jesus Luzardo with two outs and 1B Nate Lowe followed with a single to center. Rodgers scored the game's first run just before Lowe was thrown out trying to stretch his single into a double. The World team replied immediately against Justus Sheffield, as DH Seuly Matias, the minor leagues' home run leader, leading off the top of the 2nd, hit an opposite-field homer to tie the score. In the 3rd, 3B Dawel Lugo singled off Sheffield with one out, and young Hunter Greene came in to pitch. He immediately flashed 102 mph on the radar gun, but CF Luis Alexander Basabe still managed to get a hold of one of his pitches and drive it over the fence for a 3-1 lead. SS Fernando Tatis Jr. followed with a single and a stolen base then moved to third when LF Diaz flied out to right, but he was left stranded when Greene struck out Matias to end the inning.

The United States tied the game in the 4th when RF Alex Kirilloff hit a one-out single off Lewis Thorpe and C Danny Jansen followed with a long ball. The U.S. wasn't done, however, as LF Kyle Lewis then drew a walk and 3B Ke'Bryan Hayes homered as well to make it 5-3. The tone was pretty well set by then, with the hitters managing to display their prowess in spite of some pretty impressive stuff thrown at them from the mound. The scoring resumed in the top of the 5th when after a couple of quick outs by Matt Manning, Tatis singled, went to second on a wild pitch, and came in to score on a two-run homer by Diaz. After a couple more hits, 2B Luis Urias struck out to end the inning with the score now 5-5. (Source: www.baseball-reference.com)

The All-Star Futures Game is an annual baseball exhibition game hosted by Major League Baseball (MLB) in conjunction with the mid-summer MLB All-Star Game. A team of American League-affiliated prospects competes against a team of National League-affiliated prospects. From the inaugural 1999 event through 2018, teams of prospects from the United States faced off against teams of prospects from other countries.

All 30 MLB organizations are represented, with up to two players from any organisation and 25 players per team. One team is made up of prospects from American League organizations and the other of National League prospects. From 1999 to 2018, teams were divided into U.S. and World teams based on place of birth. Any player selected to the All-Star Futures Game but promoted to the majors prior to the game is replaced.

Field

For the Chicago Cubs, this week – and this month – may represent an inflection point of sorts, and their past and present may cross paths at Coors Field. Come Tuesday, former National League Rookie of the Year and MVP Kris Bryant will play in his fifth and possibly final All-Star Game as a Cub, as he, Anthony Rizzo and Javy Baez all face life on the trade block followed by free agency.

Barrero soaked in the Futures Game experience. He had his phone during batting practice, taking pictures of the ballpark and selfies with other players. He ran to the left-field stands during the other team's batting practice to hug family members. Before he approached his family, he held out his arms wide from about 40 feet away, as if he was saying, "We're here!" (Source: www.cincinnati.com)
