CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Virginia sophomore starter Nathan Kirby is 8-1 with a 1.64 ERA for the top-ranked Cavaliers baseball team this season, and the southpaw's performance has earned him an invitation to play for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team this summer.

Kirby is the eighth Virginia player to earn the chance to compete for the Collegiate National Team, and the first since pitcher Branden Kline in 2011.

Kirby has allowed just 43 hits while striking out eighty in 72 1/3 innings this year.

He had 18 strikeouts while throwing a no-hitter at Pittsburgh earlier this season.
