CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Dan Weigel threw a four-hitter and Bucknell beat Liberty 5-2 on Saturday for the second NCAA tournament victory in program history.

Weigel (8-5) allowed two runs, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter. After allowing two runs in the first inning, Weigel responded with eight shutout frames to keep the Bison (31-20-1) alive in the postseason.

Liberty (41-18), which got a solo home run from Alex Close in the first inning, was eliminated.

Bucknell got all of its runs in the first two innings. Jon Mayer went 2 for 3 with a double and drove in two runs. Rob Krentzman had a two-run single.

The Bison, who tied their single-season record for victories, will play Arkansas Sunday.

The win was the first for Bucknell in the NCAA tournament since 2008.
