Tuesday night in the New York Yankees organization didn’t provide many wins as the five teams combined for a 3-3 record in six games (Tampa had a doubleheader). However, two of the three wins came in walk-off fashion (Yankees and Double-A Trenton). At the Triple-A level, one Yankees prospect ended the month of May on a great note pitching in the city where he went to college. Check out some of the key performances in tonight’s action:
