Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Sunday, July 1, 2018

The first day of July in the New York Yankees organization was interesting, to say the least. In the seven games that were played, the starting pitcher only got the decision in two of them and there were three combined shutouts (Yankees were on the losing end of two of them). The combined record was still 4-3. Meanwhile, the big league club brought the home runs to the Bronx. Find out who shined on Sunday with our Pinstriped Performances:

New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (54-27) hit six home runs in their 11-1 win over the Boston Red Sox.
