Pinstriped Performances: Tuesday, July 2, 2019



It wasn’t a winning Tuesday in the New York Yankees organization as the affiliates combined for a 3-6 record in the nine games played (Trenton had a doubleheader). Despite the lack of wins, Scranton Wilkes-Barre got seven shutout innings from their starter, Trenton had one starter record double-digit strikeouts, and one of the Yankees’ top position-player prospects had a career night for Tampa:
