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