IRVINE — Freshman Brenden Heuston went two for three with one run batted in as the visiting Sea Kings flirted with an upset of the Pacific Coast League-leading Patriots on Wednesday.
Sam Younesi drove in the other run for CdM (6-13, 2-7 in league), for which Peter Walecka pitched a complete game, allowing six hits.
A bad-hop single led to Beckman's go-ahead run in the sixth and CdM had the tying run on second with one out in the seventh, before its next two hitters struck out.
