Pinstriped Performances: Monday May 14th, 2018

    It was a brief night in the New York Yankees organization on Monday. With two teams off and two teams postponed due to rain, the only affiliate that was in action was the Double-A Trenton Thunder as Greg Bird (0-for-3) and Billy McKinney (0-for-4) continued their rehab assignments. Check out how the Thunder did in tonight’s key performances:

    Trenton Thunder (Double-A): The Thunder (23-13) defeated the Akron Rubberducks, 3-2, in ten innings. They have now won three games in a row.

    • Chris Gittens did not have a hit (0-for-1). However, he drew three walks and his walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th inning drove in the game-winning run (18).
    • Dillon Tate did not get a decision in this game, but he still had a good night on the mound. In six innings, he gave up three hits, struck out six, and walked four on 99 pitches (61 strikes).
    • Trey Amburgey (1-for-5) scored two runs and he hit a solo home run in the third inning (3).
    • Mandy Alvarez (1-for-3) drove in the other run of the night with an RBI groundout in the fourth (12).
    • Abiatal Avelino (1-for-4, stolen base) extended his hit streak to eight games.
    • Caleb Frare gave up a run on three hits in two innings of relief. However, he did have four strikeouts for the second time this season.
    • Kaleb Ort (1-0) blew the save in the ninth. He did get the win after not giving up a run in the 10th. He went two innings, gave up a run on two hits, and struck out two.
