Episode Summary

2007 Futures Game
Get 'em on, and get 'em in. It's an age-old formula for baseball success, and it's a formula the World Team used with great precision on Sunday in a 7-2 victory over the U.S. in the annual XM All-Star Futures Game at AT and T Park. From the outset, the World Team, managed by Hall of Famer Juan Marichal, took advantage of its speed and some timely hitting to put up a solid offensive attack against some of the game's brightest pitching prospects. In the first inning, with right-hander Jeff Niemann (Devil Rays) on the mound, Saunders reached on a fielding error by second baseman Chris Coghlan (Marlins), stole second, then scored on Chin-Lung Hu's double. Hu (Dodgers) went on to steal third and scored on a sac fly by Joey Votto (Reds) to give the World an early 2-0 lead. Whereas the World Team put together runs the old-fashioned way, the U.S. team got on the board with power. In the third, Justin Upton, the No. 1 overall Draft choice of the D-backs in 2005, took Fautino De Los Santos (White Sox) deep with a solo shot to left to make it 3-1. But the World did not rest. By the time James Van Ostrand (Astros) hit a leadoff homer and Wladimir Balentien (Mariners) chipped in with an RBI double in the seventh, this one was over.moreless
