Pinstriped Performances: Bats Fall Silent

It was a Friday to forget for Yankees affiliates. Tampa managed a doubleheader split for the organization’s only win, and none of the teams scored more than four runs.

  • Star of the Game: Luis Gil – 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K, 78 pitches (55 strikes). Gil was back in a starter’s role on Friday and seems to be thriving no matter what position he’s in, or what team he’s playing for
  • Donny Sands: 1-for-4, 1 strikeout
  • Socrates Brito: 1-for-4, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Max Burt: 2-for-3, 2 doubles
