If you go off the win-loss record for the New York Yankees and their affiliates on Wednesday, then it was not a great day. In the seven games that were played (Trenton had a doubleheader), the teams combined for a 1-6 record. In those outings, only two starters ended up getting a decision (both of them were losses). Meanwhile, one hitter at Scranton Wilkes-Barre continued his power surge in June. Check out who else shined in the organization in tonight’s Pinstriped Performances.
