OMAHA , NEB. (AP) - Mikie Mahtook, Austin Nola and Blake Dean homered and LSU stayed unbeaten at the College World Series with a 9-1 victory over Arkansas on Monday night.

The No. 3-seeded Tigers (53-16), who have won 12 straight, are off until they play the Razorbacks or Virginia on Friday. A win in that game would send LSU to next week’s best-of-three finals.

Arkansas (40-23) and Virginia meet Wednesday in an elimination game.

Razorbacks starter Brett Eibner (5-5) was knocked out in the second inning after allowing four runs. TJ Forrest held LSU scoreless until the sixth, when the Tigers added five more.

LSU’s Louis Coleman (14-2) allowed a run in the first. Daniel Bradshaw came on to start the seventh, and Nolan Cain pitched the ninth.
