Futures Game MVP Yoan Moncada leads World win |

The World team hadn’t won a SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game this decade. For most of Sunday afternoon at Petco Park, it appeared it wouldn’t again this year.

The World was down to its last five outs when U.S. shortstop Alex Bregman’s (Astros) error put the tying run on base. Up came second baseman Yoan Moncada (Red Sox), the best prospect in the Futures Game and arguably the best in baseball. When Anthony Banda (D-backs) hung a changeup, Moncada crushed a 406-foot homer into the upper deck in left field for a 4-3 lead.

2016 Futures Game rosters full of prospects |

The 18th edition of the Futures Game will take place on Sunday, July 10, at Petco Park in San Diego (7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on MLB Network). Rosters for the prospect-filled game were announced on Tuesday, and as has become the tradition of the game, it is jam-packed with talent that will soon be filling big league rosters.
