On Tuesday night, the Yankees affiliates combined to go 1-3 in the four games that were played with the three losses all coming by three runs or fewer. With that being said, there was plenty of offense at Scranton Wilkes-Barre and Trenton, a strong performance by a Tampa starter, and Charleston had a late rally before losing in walk-off fashion. Find out about who shined in those games in our Pinstriped Performances and vote for your Pinstriped Performer of the Night:
