Pinstriped Performances: Friday, July 13, 2018


Friday the 13th was not a very lucky day in the New York Yankees organization. In the 11 games that were played (GCL West had a doubleheader), the teams combined for a 3-8 record with no team ahead of the Short-Season level getting a win. Staten Island had one of their outfielders have a pair of RBI doubles while a Pulaski starter gave up a run over six innings. Meanwhile, Trenton had a couple of players shine in an extra-inning loss.
