The United States team defeated the World team, 4-2, in the 2013 MLB Futures Game, giving the U.S. team a 9-6 advantage in the overall series.
Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Matt Davidson was named Futures Game MVP. Davidson blasted a two-run homer off Oakland Athletics pitching prospect Michael Ynoa, giving the U.S. team a lead it would not relinquish. C.J. Cron and Christian Yelich both had multi-hit games, while Garin Cecchini added a double.
Both starting pitchers were from the New York Mets organization. Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard did not disappoint the home crowd; each pitcher threw a scoreless frame in his half of the first inning.
