With the Tigers (9-3, 2-0) trailing 6-5 in the top of the seventh, Morris came through with a no-out grand slam that eventually held up for a 9-8 Cedar Bluff victory.
It was Cedar Bluff’s sixth straight win of the season.
The Warriors notched two runs in the bottom of the inning, but the hosts’ rally came up short when Adam Wickham came through with a two-out strikeout with a baserunner on second.
“This was an exciting win, and Justin’s hit was definitely the biggest of the game,” said Cedar Bluff head coach Steve Smith. “[CCHS] wound up getting a few runs in the last inning, so we needed every one of our runs tonight.”
Wickham (2-1) pitched the final three innings for the win, allowing no earned runs while fanning six and walking one.
Morris went 3-for-4 with five RBI, while Bryan Hawk went 2-for-4 and Matt Wilson went 2-for-5.

Wickham paced the Tigers (8-3, 2-0) with a two-run home run and a single, while Wilson and Lance McCullough each contributed two hits
