Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Tuesday, May 29, 2018

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:

New York Yankees (MLB): The Yankees (34-17) rallied to defeat the Houston Astros, 6-5, in 10 innings.

  • Gleyber Torres was 2-for-5 with two RBIs (25,26) and his single in the bottom of the 10th sealed the victory.
  • Brett Gardner had his best night of the season at the plate. He went 4-for-5 with two home runs (3,4) and drove in three runs (16,17,18). One of those home runs was a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth.
  • Aaron Judge (2-for-4, double) hit a solo home run in the fifth (15) and he is now at 40 RBIs for the season.
  • Miguel Andujar was 2-for-4 with a walk and he had two doubles.
  • CC Sabathia ended up getting the no-decision. In five innings, he gave up five runs (three earned) on eight hits, struck out four, and walked two on 99 pitches (66 strikes).
  • Aroldis Chapman (2-0) struck out one batter and walked one in the 10th as he got the win. The bullpen as a whole gave up two hits, struck out six, and walked three over the final five innings.

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (Triple-A): The Railriders (23-27) got all of their runs via the long ball in their 4-0 win over the Louisville Bats.

  • Clint Frazier went 2-for-5 with a double and he hit a home run (5) in the top of the seventh.
  • Ryan McBroom was 2-for-4 at the plate and he hit a home run in the second (5).
  • Billy McKinney hit his first home run of the season with Scranton in the second. He was 2-for-4 in the win.
  • Ronald Torreyes went 2-for-5 in his first game with the Railriders this season.
  • Josh Rogers (5-3) threw seven shutout innings, gave up five hits, struck out three, and walked two on 101 pitches (64 strikes) in the win. He is 3-0 in his last four starts.
  • Cody Carroll allowed three hits and struck out a batter in two innings as he helped seal the shutout.

Trenton Thunder (Double-A): The Thunder (32-19) picked up their fifth straight win thanks to a sacrifice bunt and an error in the bottom of the ninth as they defeated the Reading Fightin Phils, 5-4.

  • Bruce Caldwell went 1-for-2 with a walk and he drove in a run (19) on a base hit in the sixth.
  • Stephen Tarpley (4-0) got the win in relief. He allowed two hits and struck out two over the final 1.1 innings.

Tampa Tarpons (Single-A Advanced): The Tarpons (26-24) were swept in their doubleheader against the Lakeland Flying Tigers. They lost Game 1, 5-1, and Game 2, 6-3.
