NEW YORK -- The U.S. Team defeated the World Team, 4-2, in the Futures Game on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.

A quick look at how the local prospects performed:

FOR STARTERS: Mets right-handers Noah Syndergaard (U.S.) and Rafael Montero (World) both threw scoreless first innings before exiting.

Syndergaard highlighted his frame by striking out Arismendy Alcantara with a 96 mph fastball. He allowed a two-out single to Xander Bogaerts, but Bogaerts was thrown out trying to steal second.

Montero, whose fastball registered between 93 and 95 mph on the radar gun, countered with a 1-2-3 inning, inducing two fly outs and a ground out.

IN RELIEF: Yankees right-hander Rafael De Paula pitched a scoreless fifth inning, stranding a runner at third base. He struck out arguably the best position prospect in the game, Byron Buxton, with a 94 mph fastball leading off the frame.

AT THE PLATE: Brandon Nimmo entered in left field in the fifth and went 0-for-2 at the plate, lining out to shortstop and grounding out to second base.
