HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Hunter Newman and four LSU relievers combined on a one-hitter to lead the Tigers to a 3-1 victory over Arkansas Saturday to advance into the Southeastern Conference tournament championship game.

Christian Ibarra went 3 for 4 with a pair of doubles and two RBIs for LSU (51-9), which will seek its 10th SEC tournament title and its first since 2010 on Sunday against either Vanderbilt or Mississippi State. Arkansas (37-20), which was hitless until the sixth inning, capitalized on two errors and a pair of walks to take a 1-0 lead in the third.

Newman allowed only the unearned run in 4-plus innings. Chris Cotton pitched a perfect ninth for his 15th save in the third one-hitter in SEC tournament history.

Tyler Spoon greeted reliever Will LaMarche (2-0) with a single for the Razorbacks' lone hit in the sixth but Jacob Mahan grounded into a double play on the next pitch.
