Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Sunday, June 17, 2018

On Father’s Day, the New York Yankees organization did not get the results they were looking for in the win-loss column. All five teams that were in action ended up losing and they combined to score a total of six runs. Despite the lack of wins, there was still a four-hit game in the organization. Check out who was that player and much more in today’s edition of Pinstriped Performances:

New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (46-21) had their three-game win streak come to an end in a 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.

  • Aaron Hicks went 2-for-5 and hit a solo home run (8) in the bottom of the fifth.
  • Didi Gregorius was 2-for-3 at the plate with a walk and a triple.
  • C.C. Sabathia (4-2) gave the Yankees a long start, but he did not end up on the winning side. He went 7.2 innings, allowed three runs on ten hits, struck out ten, and walked one on 102 pitches (76 strikes).
  • Adam Warren gave up a hit and struck out a batter in the final 1.1 innings of the game.

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (33-35) had their three-game win streak snapped by the Syracuse Chiefs in a 4-2 loss.

  • Brandon Drury was 2-for-3 and had a pair of doubles in the loss and he is now hitting .360 in Triple-A.
  • Nestor Cortes Jr. threw the ball well in a no-decision. In five innings of work, he gave up a run on four hits, struck out six, and walked two on 84 pitches (55 strikes).
  • Brady Lail (4-4) took the loss out of the bullpen. In 1.2 innings, he gave up three runs on one hit (a home run) and walked three batters.
