Pinstriped Performances: Monday, August 6, 2018


On a Monday where three affiliates had the day off, the New York Yankees organization had a 3-5 record in the eight games that were played. The big storyline was in Tampa where two pitchers combined for a no-hitter. However, it was not the outcome that you might think. Plus, this year’s First Round pick drove in his first three runs in the Rookie League. Find out about these players and much more in our Pinstriped Performances:
