OMAHA, Neb. - Andrew Darr doubled in the go-ahead run in the top of the 12th inning and Arkansas, which had been down to its last strike in the ninth, rallied to defeat Virginia, 4-3, in the College World Series last night.
Brett Eibner's two-out, two-run homer off Virginia closer Kevin Arico in the top of the ninth tied it at 3, and Arkansas' Dallas Keuchel put the winning or tying run on base in each of the last four innings to hold off the Cavaliers, but escaped each jam.
Arkansas (41-23) plays LSU tomorrow and would have to beat the Tigers then and again Saturday to reach next week's best-of-three finals.
Virginia (49-15-1) was eliminated after going 1-2 in Omaha. *
