Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Friday, July 27, 2018

Friday night in the New York Yankees organization saw two teams get rained out (New York and Staten Island) and both Gulf Coast League squads played a doubleheader. In the ten games that were played, there was a combined record of 4-6. Out in Scranton Wilkes-Barre, one player drove in five runs for the third time this season.
