Working on the 2014 Futures Game set…. Joey Gallo and Kris Bryant are pretty good, like Ruth and Gehrig good. On paper the USA team should crush the World team.
My son and I played the Futures Game with my APBA compatible cards. Just as I suspected the USA won 17-7. Joey Gallo went 3 for 4, with 4 RBI and a HR, reaching base all 5 times. Corey Seager blasted two HRS, one in the 2nd and one in the 9th, going 3 for 6. Also adding a homer was Peter O’Brien while Jesse Winker opened the scoring with a bases clearing double in the 1st. The World Team scored all their runs on home runs by Renato Nunez, Javier Baez and Gabby Guerrero but with the USA up 8-0 in the second these HRs were pretty much meaningless.
