An overview of the Yankees minor league affiliates on Wednesday:

The standouts:

Corban Joseph, DH: 1-for-3 with a home run

Taylor Dugas, LF: 0-for-1 with two walks

Carmen Angelini, SS: 2-for-3

DOUBLE-A – Trenton Thunder

The skinny: New Hampshire had back-to-back four-run innings in the sixth and seventh en route to an 8-2 win over Trenton.

The standouts:

Francisco Arcia, C: 2-for-4 with a double

Mason Williams, RF: 2-for-4 with a double and a triple

Dan Fiorito, 3B: 3-for-4

SINGLE-A ADVANCED – Tampa Yankees

The skinny: Tampa took a one-run lead in the bottom of the second and kept tacking on during an 11-1 win over Brevard County.

The standouts:

NOTES: With Judge’s three extra-base hits on Wednesday, he ended a mini power slump. In his previous 13 games, Judge had just two extra-base hits, a double and a home run. Judge has tended to hit home runs in bunches this season. He’s gone deep in back-to-back games six times, accounting for 10 of his 17 home runs…Payton was 3-for-17 against lefthanded pitchers heading into Wednesday’s game before going 2-for-2 with a walk off Brevard County’s lefthanded starting pitcher.

SINGLE-A – Charleston RiverDogs

The skinny: Greenville downed Charleston, 7-2.

The standouts:

Yeicok Calderon, RF: 1-for-2 with two walks

Kale Sumner, 3B: 0-for-3 with two walks

SINGLE-A SHORT-SEASON – Staten Island Yankees

The skinny: Staten Island had 13 hits, though only three went for extra-bases and were all doubles, during a 14-4 win over Brooklyn.

The standouts:
