Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Thursday, August 16, 2018

It was a winning day in the New York Yankees organization as they went 6-3 in the nine games that were played on Thursday. The highlight of the night was the Charleston Riverdogs using three pitchers to throw a no-hitter. Plus, Staten Island had only two hits in  an extra-inning win and a late surge by Tampa led to a victory. Find out who were the stars of the night with our Pinstriped Performances:
