CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. (AP) -- Sophomore Josh Sborz went seven shutout innings and Virginia used a pair of three-run innings early to beat Maryland 11-2 Monday night in Game 3 of the Charlottesville Super Regional and advance to the College World Series for the third time in six seasons.

Junior third baseman Kenny Towns drove in four runs on a triple and a single to force Maryland starter Bobby Ruse out of the game after 2 1-3 innings. Ruse (7-3) gave up six runs on six hits and a walk.

Sborz (5-4) allowed four hits and three walks while striking out nine. The national No. 3 Cavaliers are the highest remaining seed.

Sborz has had control issues much of the season, but he escaped trouble by getting Maryland third baseman Jose Cuas to ground into a double play to end a threat in the first inning.
