Pinstriped Performances: Wednesday, June 20, 2018



You could make the case that it was a walk-off Wednesday in the New York Yankees organization. On a day where the eight teams in action went 5-3, there were walk-off home runs in the Bronx and at Scranton-Wilkes Barre. Plus, there were 16 runs scored in Trenton by the home team and Tampa’s starter has not lost a game since April 17. Check out these games and much more in today’s Pinstriped Performances
