Eibner's blast lifts Hogs into tie with Cavs

June, 17, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. -- Not so fast, Virginia.

The Cavs were one out from a date with LSU on Friday for the Bracket One championship when Arkansas' Brett Eibner mashed a 1-1 offering from closer Kevin Arico deep into the left-field stands for a two-run homer to tie Wednesday's CWS elimination game at 3-3 after eight-and-a-half innings.

Virginia led the entire game until the ninth, taking a 2-0 lead in the fifth before the Hogs trimmed that in half with a run in the seventh. The Cavs added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth with two outs when Dan Grovatt sent an 0-1 pitch from reliever Mike Bolsinger over the wall in left center field for a 3-1 lead.

UVa still has a last turn at bat to try to end this game without going to extra innings.
