Pinstriped Performances: Tuesday May 15th, 2018


Tuesday was a busy day in the New York Yankees organization. There were seven games scheduled, but only six were finished as the Yankees have to wait till tomorrow to resume their game. Out of the six that were played (including two doubleheaders), the teams combined for a 2-4 record. There was a complete game in Tampa, a Trenton starter continued his scoreless streak, and a Charleston outfielder continued his power surge.
