Pinstriped Performances: Thursday, July 19, 2018


While the New York Yankees were off and the Charleston Riverdogs were postponed, the organization had ten games played when you consider that the Gulf Coast League teams played a  doubleheader against each other. In those games, the combined record was 5-5. One Scranton Wilkes-Barre player hit a home run off of a former Yankee reliever, a Pulaski player had four hits, and a Staten Island first baseman homered for the second straight game. Find out who those players were and much more in our Pinstriped Performances from Thursday:
