Mother Nature played a factor in the New York Yankees organization once again on Sunday. Since the Yankees and the Trenton Thunder had their games postponed, four games took place and one of them was a suspended game from Saturday (Charleston). In those games, the teams went 2-2 with Tampa and Charleston scoring a combined 19 runs in their wins. Let’s take a look at the other key performances from Sunday:
