Recap

In a match-up of two top ten teams, this game did not disappoint. Islanders struck the first blow by field saving at West Potomac Park and putting Stoney's within a much closer range to their sponsor bar than their usual spot at Anacostia Park, thereby distracting them with the promise of a postgame selection of 21 beers on taps and what the Washington Post has called one of the best-grilled cheese sandwiches in the city. Fortunately, Stoney's is more age than beauty these days and has been around the bases a time or two, and did not let this get in their way. Having had a one-loss regular season in 2017, the Stoney's were motivated to hand Islanders its first Land they quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead after two innings. Islanders would respond to pull it within one, but Stoney's took advantage of a 4-run third to push the lead to 6-1. Islanders again refused to back down, pulling it back to 6-5, but Stoney's group of willy veterans responded by pushing the lead and never looking back for a 12-8 win.
