Braves in the Futures Game

Jason Heyward and Barbaro Canizares represented the Braves in the Futures Game today. Canizares started at first base and went 1-2 with an RBI single. Heyward started in RF and went 1-2 with a single. Heyward hit the ball hard in both AB's, singling to center in his first AB and grounding out sharply in his second. World team 2B Starlin Castro made a nice play to retire Heyward in his second AB, snagging a line drive on the short hop and throwing Jason out at first. Heyward was impressive all around.

Former Braves, Tyler Flowers and Neftali Feliz also competed and played well. Feliz threw a scoreless inning, striking out 2. The stadium guns were showing Feliz's velocity in the mid 90's while pitch f/x had him up to 100. Flowers started at catcher for the US team and went 1-2 with a single.

The game was nearly rained out but after a 4 hour rain delay, play began. The game was shortened to 7 innings because of the delay. The World Team won the game 7-5.
