2013 Tioga vs. Edison BaseballTIOGA CENTER, N.Y. - Last time Tioga took on division powerhouse Edison they jumped out to a big lead only for the Spartans to rally back and win.

This time the Tigers held on.

Tioga took a 7-1 lead after two innings only to see it evaporate when Edison scored five runs in the sixth to cut it to a 10-8 Tioga advantage.

The Tigers would get one back in the bottom half of the inning and hold Edison scoreless in the seventh to secure the win.
