Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Sunday, August 12, 2018

On Sunday, there were only six games played in the New York Yankees organization. However, it was a winning day as the affiliates combined for a 4-2 record. One pitcher got his first Triple-A win while a Trenton catcher had two home runs in a losing effort. Meanwhile, a Pulaski pitcher tied a career-high and season-high for strikeouts in a game.
