A pair of Dodgers were on display at the Futures Game on Sunday at Marlins Park in Miami, a game that saw Team USA jump out to a 7-0 lead, then hold on to beat Team World, 7-6.

Yadier Alvarez started for Team World and got hung with the loss, allowing a run in his lone inning of work. Alvarez retired his first two batters faced, including a strikeout of Brewers outfielder Lewis Brinson, but then walked Astros outfielder Derek Fisher on four pitches.

Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins and Reds third baseman Nick Senzel followed with singles to score a run. Alvarez was mostly between 95-98 mph with his fastball, and threw 23 pitches in his one inning.

Alex Verdugo started and played left field for Team World, and played four innings. Verdugo went 0-for-2 at the plate.

He struck out looking against Rays pitcher Brent Honeywell in the first inning, then grounded out to shortstop against Tigers pitcher Beau Burrows in the fourth.
