Pinstriped Performances: Monday, July 2, 2018



Due to a suspended game having to be finished in the Gulf Coast League, there were 11 games played in the New York Yankees organization on Monday and the team/affiliates combined for a 5-6 record. While the big league club lost in extra innings, a Trenton third baseman had a multi-home run game, a Scranton starter was able to throw the most innings  he’s had in a game this year for the Railriders, and Charleston added to their winning streak. Find out more about those players and much more with our Pinstriped Performances:
