Sixers sweep Sullivan, improve to 19-3

In the opener, Isaac Turner, Logan Macaluso and Keagan Downey combined to drive in seven runs to lead the Sixers. Turner cracked a double and a single, Macaluso rapped two singles and Downey had a double. Also for the Sixers, Tyler Goudy had two singles and Austin Weaver had a double.

In the second game, Evan Warden cracked two doubles and drove in two runs and Turner and Austin Edwards each had a single and two RBI. Downey added a solo home run and a single.

Macaluso started and pitched four innings for the win. He allowed one earned run and three hits. He struck out four and walked four.
