Fisher 2 RBIs, US tops World 7-6 in All-Star Futures Game

"Regardless of how you do, it's a unique experience - a taste of the big leagues", Naylor said.

Houston Astros prospect Derek Fisher scored the first run and hit a two-run double for the United States team, which won for the seventh time in the last eight years. Brendan Rodgers, a Rockies second base prospect, opened the inning with a first-pitch single, and Gordon wasted no time doing the same, lacing a 95-mph fastball onto the All-Star logo adorning the center field turf.

Gordon, a shortstop in the Minnesota Twins' organization, went 1-for-3, scored a run and batted leadoff in the Americans' 7-6 victory against the World team at Marlins Park. Both are with the Astros.

Gordon, who leads the Southern League in triples, was in the middle of the biggest inning, when the United States team lined four consecutive hits off Acevedo to open the fourth inning and score three times. Lewis Brinson of the Brewers doubled home a run.

Gordon, who played short and led off for the United States team, grounded to second on a 3-1 pitch in the first inning, and popped to shortstop on an 0-1 changeup in the second. "It's the first time I've played with US across my chest".

Whether it was Honeywell dropping changeups under Jimenez's barrel, Kopech blowing a 101 miles per hour fastball past Yoan Moncada, Burrows running a 98 miles per hour fastball in on Devers' hands for strike three, or Scott striking out Acuna and Jimenez back-to-back on 89-90 miles per hour sliders, it was clear immediately the front of the USA pitching staff was up to the challenge.

"You see everyone striking out people and it's like 'I gotta get in on this action, '" said Scott, the Orioles No. 11 prospect. "I'm going to go talk to him in a minute and give him some grief for it". "When you're able to face a teammate, you have to enjoy the moment".

Kopech started Moncada with a slider taken for a ball inside, then delivered three consecutive fastballs for strikes at 99.3, 100.4, and 100.9 miles per hour, the last of which Moncada chased up and out.

Brazilian right-hander Thyago Vieira also surpassed 100 miles per hour.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. of the Toronto Blue Jays, at 18 the youngest player in the game, singled twice and scored twice for the World team.

Moncada, the Futures Game MVP a year ago, went 0 for 2 and made a wild throw that led to an unearned run.

"It was a good experience", Guerrero said through an interpreter. Scott followed pumping 98-100 miles per hour fastballs with a swing-and-miss low 90s slider that got him both of his strikeouts, although he did give up the first run of the game.
