Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Wednesday, July 18, 2018

As the New York Yankees are still on their All-Star break, six of the affiliates were in action on Wednesday with Charleston having the night off and the Gulf Coast League having their games rained out. In the seven games played, the teams combined for a 4-3. There were a total of three shutouts in the organization with the Yankee affiliate on the winning end of two of them. Plus, a pitcher in Tampa picked up his 10th win of the season. Find out who that pitcher was and more in our Pinstriped Performances:
