On Monday, the New York Yankees and their organization went 4-3 in the seven games that were played. Scranton Wilkes-Barre needed extra innings to get a key win for their playoff chances, a Tampa outfielder reached a milestone stolen mark on the season, and a Charleston pitcher made a good first impression in his debut start for the Riverdogs.
