2012 All-Star Futures Game: Dodgers, Angels Prospects A Mixed Bag In 17-5 U.S. Futures Win

The 2012 MLB Futures game took place on Sunday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The top prospects from around the country faced off in an exhibition game, which the U.S. Futures team won, 17-5.

Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Chris Reed, who was born in London, pitched the third inning for the World Futures team and gave up four runs (two earned) on two hits and one walk. In typical wacky All-Star game fashion, Reed was credited with a blown save, since the World team entered the third inning with a 4-0 lead and Reed allowed the tying runs to score. Of course, it made little difference given the final score of the game.

Los Angeles Angels prospect Ariel Pena had an even worse showing, entering the game in the sixth inning and giving up eight earned runs on seven hits and a walk in 0.1 innings pitched, good for an ERA of 216.00 in the game.

Of all Southern California prospects, Angels second baseman Jean Segura started the game in the leadoff spot and went 2-for-3 with a run scored.

Nick Castellanos of the Detroit Tigers organization took home the MVP award by going 3-for-4 with a three-run homer.
