66ers move into tie for home field

Behind 5 1/3 shutout innings from Johnny Hellweg, the 66ers downed Lake Elsinore 6-3 on Thursday night at the Diamond.

The win moved the Sixers to 67-69 overall, tied with Lake Elsinore for home field in the first round of the playoffs. The teams play each other in the playoffs beginning on Wednesday. Lake Elsinore does hold the tiebreaker, however.

Carlos  Ramirez also had three hits and two RBIs, David Harris had two hits and two RBIs and Hellweg struck out nine batters.

The Sixers return home for a season-ending four-game series against Stockton beginning Friday.
