Castellanos, Myers power U.S. to Futures Game win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Detroit prospect Nick Castellanos hit a three-run homer during a nine-run sixth inning, and Royals minor leaguer Wil Myers added three RBIs to lead the U.S. team to a 17-5 rout of the World team in the All-Star Futures Game on Sunday.

Billy Hamilton and Manny Machado each drove in two runs for the U.S. team, contributing to a record 22 combined runs during the annual prospect showcase.

Castellanos was the game's MVP, but it was Myers who drew the biggest reaction. The 21-year-old outfielder received a standing ovation from an adoring sellout crowd that has been pining for his arrival all season. Myers is hitting .315 with 14 homers in 48 games at Triple-A Omaha.

Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy earned the win by pitching a scoreless fourth inning.
