Corey Atnip drove in the winning run on a sacrifice fly in the top of the seventh inning, and the DeKalb County High School Tiger baseball team edged Cannon County, 5-4, in the district opener for both teams, Monday in Woodbury.
Each team plated a run in the first inning, but the Tigers grabbed a 2-1 lead in the top of the second. The Lions went up 3-2 with two runs in the bottom of the third, but DeKalb answered with two runs in the top of the fourth inning on a two-run home run by Trey Finley, which gave the Tigers a 4-3 advantage. Cannon County tied the game with a run in the bottom of the sixth, but Atnip's RBI put the Black and Gold back on top in the seventh. Bray Page came in to pitch in the seventh and shut the Lions out on one hit to record the save.
