66ers drop slugfest to Mavericks

6-4 and 9-6 leads aren’t safe in the California League, and certainly not in Adelanto.

And they didn’t hold up for the Sixers, who held those leads over the Mavericks on Tuesday before dropping a 10-9 decision

With the score 9-9 in the ninth, Carlos Triunfel led off with a single against Matthew Sartor (0-1), went to second on a wild pitch, to third on a passed ball, and scored on a one-out sacrifice fly by Jose Yepez.

Jaime Pedroza was 3-for-5 with three doubles, three runs and two RBI for the Sixers, Austin Gallagher was 2-for-2 with three RBI and Tommy Giles hit a two-run homer, his 14th.

Huo Kui Lo hit a three-run homer in the seventh for the Mavericks in the seventh inning to tie the score, 9-9.
