Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Sunday, June 24, 2018

It was a shortened Sunday in the New York Yankees organization as the Dominican Summer League and Gulf Coast League squads had the day off and Scranton Wilkes-Barre had their game suspended. As far as the on-field squads went 2-4 with Pulaski and Tampa picking up wins. Meanwhile, a Staten Island pitcher struck out ten batters and a Tampa hitter continued his hitting streak.
