CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Nathan Kirby allowed just one hit in eight innings and Virginia beat Arkansas 3-0 on Saturday night in the Charlottesville Regional.

Kirby (9-1) struck out nine for Virginia (46-13), including the last five batters he faced. Nick Howard finished for his 19th save.

Arkansas (39-24) managed just two hits and will face Bucknell in an elimination game Sunday.

Mike Papi gave Kirby all the support he would need with a two-run homer in the first. It was Papi's 11th home run of the season. Papi scored the Cavaliers' final run in the third when he singled and came around on singles by Derek Fisher and Kenny Towns against Arkansas starter Trey Killian (4-9).

The winner of the Arkansas-Bucknell game will have to beat the Cavaliers twice -- on Sunday night, and again Monday -- to advance.
