Arkansas was one pitch away from getting out a jam in the third inning of the Charlottesville regional.

That one pitch was just a bit outside, walking home a run and the flood gates then opened from there.

Virginia scored six runs with two outs in the third inning and posted a 9-2 win to take the regional on their home field.

The Cavaliers’ Mike Papi drew a bases loaded walk to start the scoring in the third then Joe McCarthy sent a grounder to third that could not be handled to put Arkansas in a 2-0 hole.

Derek Fisher and John La Prise then each added two-run singles to push the lead to 6-0, more than enough support for starting pitcher Brandon Waddell.

The Razorbacks avoided being shutout for the second straight day against Virginia as Krisjon Wilkerson belted a two-run home run in the seventh.

Arkansas (40-25) kept their season alive earlier on Sunday after routing Bucknell 10-0.

Virginia will host next weekend’s super regional against conference rival Maryland.
