The World team only mustered three hits against the U.S. pitching; Xander Bogaerts hit a pair of singles, while Arismendy Alcantara smashed a solo homer off Anthony Ranaudo in the fourth.

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.
