Due to Charleston being rained out on Saturday, there were only four games played in the New York Yankees organization. There weren’t many wins as the teams combined for a 1-3 record. In fact, it took extra innings for the one affiliate to pick up their win. Let’s take a look at some of the key performers from Saturday night’s action:
New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (32-16) were blown out by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 11-4.
