66ers fall, 8-5 in 11 innings

Nate Freiman’s RBI double with one out in the 11th inning snapped a 5-5 tie and sent Lake Elsinore to an 8-5 victory over the 66ers on Thursday night, in the first game of the second half.

Lake Elsinore improved to 1-5 in extra-inning games and became the last team in the league to win an extra-inning game. The Sixers dropped to 2-3 in extra-inning games, all of which have been at Arrowhead Credit Union Park.

Michael Wing’s RBI single with one out in the seventh had tied the score 5-5 and sent it into extra innings.

Wing finished 2 for 5, as did Kole Calhoun, Casey Haerther and Dillon Baird, in his first game back with the team. Steven Irvine finished a triple short of the cycle.

Two of the Sixers relievers in the game, Mike Kenney and Kevin Johnson (1-1), who took the loss, will be speaking today (Friday) at Dollahan Elementary School in Rialto as part of the after school “Think Together” program at about 2:30 p.m.
