Team USA took down Team World, despite a late rally, 7-6 in MLB's Futures Game on Sunday afternoon at Marlins Park in Miami.

There were a few players with Red Sox connections playing in the game, including current Double-A third baseman Rafael Devers.

Playing for Team World, Devers was one of the few players to play the whole game and went 1-for-4 while batting cleanup. He singled on the first pitch he saw against top Rays pitching prospect Brent Honeywell in the second inning. He was the first base runner of the game for Team World.

Devers was the only member of the Red Sox organization to play in the game, but there were three others who were in the Sox' organization last year.

Right-hander Michael Kopech pitched a 1-2-3 second inning for Team USA, which included a strikeout of Yoan Moncada, both of whom were part of the deal with the White Sox for Chris Sale last offseason. Kopech's fastballs were: 100, 100, 100, 101, 99, 100 and 101 mph.

Moncada went 0-for-2 in the game while leading off playing second base.

Mauricio Dubon, who was part of the deal for former Brewers reliever Tyler Thornburg, replaced Moncada and went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored.
