Pinstriped Performances: Twelve Innings, One Hit

Up in the Valley, another strong outing from Randy Vasquez was overshadowed by an offensive performance so bad that it was almost spectacular. Elsewhere, fans in Tampa got to see a milestone for this year’s first round pick, and Scranton walked off winners.
