Jacksonville (2-5) struck first by plating one run in the home half of the third inning.
That's when Michael Sexton lined a hard-hit double to give the Tribe it's first man in scoring position of the game.
Sexton, who got aboard three times in the contest, went on to score later in the frame.
Mason Smith got the start on the hump and worked four innings and walked three and struck out two. Smith was touched up for the loss.
Bryce Cundieff relieved Smith and worked the final two frames for the Indians.
Cundieff did not allow a single Bulldog hit, while fanning three and issuing a couple of free passes.
The Bulldogs plated all of their runs in the top half of the fifth segment. The eight spot proved to be enough run production to net Edgewood starter Kobe Huett the pitching triumph.
Huett scatted four runs over five innings, as the Indians picked up six hits on the night.
Huett fanned five and walked four.
Tribe senior Brayden Rawlinson drove in three runs for the Indians, while Chris Holcomb, also a 12th- grader, picked up two hits.
