The switch was flipped Friday evening for the first night game at the Vineyard Baseball Park, as two Gateway Babe Ruth teams took to the field for a playoff game. The Vineyard Brewers defeated the Vineyard Angels 10-0 in the second game of a best-of-three series. Two days later, the Martha's Vineyard Sharks played under the lights for the first time, facing off against the Nashua Silver Knights in a pitchers' duel. In the top of the ninth, Nashua scored the first runs of the evening, taking a 2-0 lead and prompting Sharks players and fans alike to don rally caps as "Don't Stop Believin'" played on the loudspeaker. The charms worked, with Sharks batting leader Dylan Tice launching a 3-run walk-off homer to end the game and give the team its 6th victory of the season.
All in a night's work.
