So you don't trust your mechanic? No signal to the injector means no fuel is being sprayed into cylinder #6, so you will get a misfire. I'm not there to inspect the wiring, so I have to agree with the mechanic.

Check drive pulses to that injector if good, this will eliminate the possibility of a bad control module.Try swapping injector # 6 with another injector and re-scan the ECM. If the trouble moves to the other cylinder change injector but if the trouble remains with cylinder #6, run compression test on that cylinder.
