It was tough to find a lot of offense in the New York Yankees organization on Sunday. With the Dominican Summer League having the day off and the Triple-A squad rained out, only four games were played and the teams combined for a 2-2 record. The big league club and the Double-A club was shutout. Meanwhile, Tampa hit three home runs and Charleston used a six-run inning to get its wins. Check out some of the key performances from Sunday’s action:
