    Pinstriped Performances: Tuesday, August 28, 2018

    With Tampa getting rained out on Tuesday, only six games were played in the New York Yankees organization and the affiliates combined to go 3-3. The big league club had a walk-off win and their star catcher hit another home run for Scranton Wilkes-Barre on his rehab assignment. Meanwhile, the Thunder had their designated hitter drive in three runs and Staten Island picked up a much-needed win for their playoff hopes.
