Pinstriped Performances: Monday, July 30, 2018


On a Monday when the New York Yankees were off and they made two trades, the affiliates went 3-6 in the nine games that were played. Both Gulf Coast League teams had doubleheaders while Trenton and Tampa had the night off. In Staten Island, the Yankees’ First Round Pick in the 2017 MLB Draft made his New-York Penn League debut while this year’s First Round Pick hit his first home run in the GCL. Meanwhile, Scranton Wilkes-Barre had a pitcher become a hard-luck loser after nearly throwing a no-hitter. Find out who those players were and much more in our Pinstriped Performances:
