The 66ers have done what they've done all season long, stick right around .500. June saw most of the same as the Sixers went 13-13, never having a winning streak or losing streak larger than three games.


PLAYER OF THE MONTH: Kody Eaves, Second Baseman

Eaves turns 22 today, but this is no gift because of that, but instead his output during the month of June. Eaves saw a .240/.305/.385 slash which may not seem impressive, but his 15 RBI and nine runs scored are. Eaves collected seven extra base hits in June, and stole an extra seven, not only helping provide runs from the middle part of the lineup, but putting himself in scoring position multiple times. Eaves went 9-for-26 with two doubles and a home run in the final week of June, with a .952 OPS.


PITCHER OF THE MONTH: Michael Smith, Right-Handed Reliever

Smith was a dominant force out of the bullpen for the Sixers in June, allowing just one run in 16.1 innings pitched. Smith struck out nearly one batter per inning he pitched, while walking just one over the entire month. Smith held batters to a .169/.183/.203 slash. Smith also picked up two wins and two saves over the month, and to top it all off, earned a roster spot on the California League All-Star roster, pitching the seventh inning of the All-Star Game.
