Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Thursday, August 30, 2018

On Thursday, there were six games played in the New York Yankees organization and the teams combined for a 3-3 record. Scranton Wilkes-Barre had a walk-off win and a Staten Island reliever had one of the rare feats in baseball with a four-strikeout inning. Also, the Tampa squad had Clint Frazier participate in a rehab assignment. Find out about how he did and much more with our Pinstriped Performances:
