If this year's MLB Futures Game is any indication, the future for the Milwaukee Brewers will remain bright.
The Brewers had three players representing the organization in the annual All-Star Week prospect showcase, with Lewis Brinson and Corey Ray playing for Team USA and Mauricio Dubon suiting up for the World team.
Brinson got the start in center for the Americans and played a big role in helping Team USA to a 7-6 win.
The Brewers' top prospect struck out in his first plate appearance in the game, but worked a two-out walk in his second trip to the plate and stole a base. He'd be stranded at second, though, when Houston's Derek Fisher grounded out to end the inning.
Brinson's third AB was the big one, driving in Colorado's Brendan Rodgers with an RBI double.

Brinson would later score on another RBI double by Fisher.
Ray came on later in the game and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout, but grabbed plenty of headlines before the game in a BP session that had plenty of people raving. Ray hit 8 balls over the wall in batting practice, the most out of any prospect at this year's event.

While Team USA jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first four innings, the World team battled back late in the game. Dubon got in on the comeback, doubling in the 6th inning and later scoring on a groundout.

Overall, it was a strong showing for the Brewers' crew. We'll see if Corey Knebel can represent the first-place organization just as well during the big league game on Tuesday.
