IRVINE — Brian Ford went three for four with a double for the Sea Kings in the Pacific Coast League finale Thursday.

CdM (13-11, 7-8 in league) finished tied for fourth in league with University. The top three teams in the PCL are guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.

"If they go to the tiebreaker, we are done," Emme said of what could be the deciding factor between the Sea Kings and Trojans.

CdM finished with nine hits against the PCL champion. Aaron White was two for four.

Andrew McCormack was two for four with two runs batted in. He also pitched six innings. He struck out five and allowed four hits. Sam Cubeiro earned the save.
