MORRISTOWN, NJ - In the same fashion that a cloud of dirt lofted over Pig-Pen in the "Peanuts" series, the looming Morris County Tournament seeding meeting is hovering over Morris County baseball.
In the final days before Thursday's get-together to iron out the matchups, every result can mean the difference of advancing a round further or not.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Morristown baseball team picked up a crucial third win of the season, defeating Morris Hills by a 4-2 count to improve its overall mark to 3-5 on the campaign.
Caden Tierney threw 58 pitches in four innings of work, allowing six hits and two runs. Senior Jaxen Ruhalter picked up the victory in relief for the Colonials, pitching three innings of one-hit ball in a 39 pitch effort. 
Tate Ballestero went 1-for-3 with a RBI for Morristown, while Colin Burke had the team's only multi-hit day with a 2-for-3 afternoon.
The Colonials will travel to Westfield on Thursday.
