Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Sunday, June 10, 2018

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:

New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (42-19) only managed three hits in their 2-0 loss to the New York Mets as their four-game win streak came to an end.

  • Miguel Andujar was 2-for-3 and had the lone multi-hit game in the loss.
  • Greg Bird was the only other Yankee with a hit (1-for-3, walk).
  • Luis Severino (9-2) made one mistake and it ended up costing him. He went five innings, gave up two runs on five hits, struck out seven, and walked two on 93 pitches (66 strikes).
  • The trio of Chasen Shreve, Adam Warren, and Jonathan Holder did not give a hit in the final three innings. They combined for four strikeouts (two by Shreve and Holder) and one walk (Shreve).

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (27-33) had their game against the Louisville Bats cancelled due to rain. They will be back in action tomorrow night at 6:35 p.m ET against the Rochester Red Wings.

Trenton Thunder (Double-A): The Thunder (35-25) were shut out by the Binghamton Rumble  Ponies, 6-0.

  • Gosuke Katoh was 1-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base (8).
  • Mandy Alvarez (1-for-4) and Devyn Bolasky (1-for-3, walk) were the only other two Thunder players with hits.
  • Michael King went six innings, gave up two runs (one earned) on five hits, struck out four batters, and walked two in relief of Loaisiga.
  • Kaleb Ort did not allow a hit in a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

Tampa Tarpons (Single-A Advanced): The Tarpons (34-29) defeated the Bradenton Marauders, 4-2 thanks to three home runs.
