NEW YORK — Tacoma Rainiers pitcher Taijuan Walker pitched a scoreless inning, helping the United States beat the World team 4-2 on Sunday in the All-Star Futures Game.

Walker, a 21-year-old right-hander, allowed no hits and a walk.

Arizona minor-leaguer Matt Davidson hit a two-run homer for the U.S., and Cubs prospect Arismendy Alcantara homered for the World team.

The game is baseball’s annual showcase for top minor-league prospects. It was the opening event for three days of All-Star festivities at Citi Field, home of the Mets.
