Although this will probably come naturally from playing, if you're having difficulty because you're new to baseball games in general, there are some things you can do to improve your odds. Although you have to keep the difficulty on pro or higher, you can adjust each player's individual sliders on the rosters screen of the game. You can make your opposing team extremely poor hitters (lowering all their stats), and if you feel the incentive, you can make your pitcher have excessively good stats. You could also increase the defensive prowess of your players as well to increase the likelihood of making defensive outs.
If you're wondering what 6+ innings of work means it's relatively simple. It just means that you pitched 6 innings, and that you pitched at least a "+" more. + is used to indicate that you pitched past the 6th inning in some form - you could have gotten some one out, someone could have gotten a hit, walked, gotten hit by a pitch, basically anything. 6 and 1/3 innings would mean you pitched 6 innings + 1 out. 6+ innings itself means that you pitched 6 innings and then faced at least one batter who you didn't get out.
