Its game with Pinellas Park, Fla., all knotted up, Bartow got a game-winning hit from Jordan Ford, whose hit scored Devonte Ross and gave it an 11-10 win in the Dizzy Dean World Series.
Ford finished the game 2-for-3, and Ross went 2-for-2 with a triple.
Other Bartow hitters included Gavin Geros, who went 3-for-3 with an RBI and two runs; Will Parris, 3-for-4 with two runs; and Chandler Tromza, 1-for-3 with a double.
Bartow's other game Monday had nowhere near the drama of its first as the Blue defeated Hobgood, 10-1.
Ford and Davis Williams were a perfect 3-for-3, and Buck Brumlow also was perfect, going 2-for-2. Parker McPherson was 2-for-3.
Blaine Davis earned defensive player of the game honors from the Bartow coaching staff, said Brenton Baggett, assistant director of the Bartow County Parks and Recreation Department.
The 7U Blue all-stars are among eight teams remaining in the tournament, including four in the winner's bracket where Bartow (5-0) finds itself.
Bartow plays the Kennesaw Red today at 3:30 p.m. in Ringgold.
About 20-something minutes away from the 7U Bartow team's tournament, the 6U Blue all-stars' stay in the Dizzy Dean World Series came to an end in East Ridge, Tenn., with a loss to Pinellas Park.
Baggett said the 6U Bartow team, which finishes among the top-10 teams in its age division, had a good season, advancing through district and state tournaments before losing its second game of bracket play in the Dizzy Dean World Series.
