With Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre and Double-A Trenton on their All-Star breaks, there were seven affiliates in action, but nine games because of two doubleheaders (Yankees and GCL). In total, those teams combined for a 4-5 record. While a big leaguer finished a triple shy of the cycle, one affiliate got an extra-inning win while another squeaked out a 2-1 win thanks to a pair of solo home runs.
