Pinstriped Performances: Saturday, June 15, 2019



It wasn’t the greatest night for the Yankees on the farm. All four affiliates in action ended up losing their respective games and three of them scored one run or fewer. With that being said, there was a good pitching performance in Scranton-Wilkes-Barre and Trenton got a pair of home runs in their loss. Plus, Tampa’s top power hitter took home a nice honor in the Florida State League’s All-Star festivities.

Zack Zehner was 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Trenton’s loss to Bowie on Saturday. (Robert M Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)
