Pinstriped Performances: Friday, August 17, 2018


Due to rain, the schedule was a little bit abbreviated in the New York Yankees organization. In the seven different games that were completed (two GCL teams played each other), there was a combined record of 5-3. Trenton had one of the Yankees top prospects continue his rehab assignment and there was a walk-off in Tampa. Meanwhile, in the Gulf Coast League, one prospect had a multi-home run game.
