Mets top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard pitched a scoreless ninth inning and earned the save for Team USA in today’s 3-2 Futures Game win over the World Team. The 6’6 Texan struck out a batter and allowed a hit in one inning of work.

Catching prospect Kevin Plawecki started the game behind the dish and went 0 for 2 at the plate with an RBI groundout that gave the USA it’s first run.

The Cubs Javier Baez and Rangers Joey Gallo, two of the games biggest power prospects, homered in the game. Gallo was named the games MVP.
