However, when the 2009 Arkansas Razorbacks baseball team reached the College World Series, Eibner hit "one of the most memorable home runs in program history" when he tied an elimination game vs Virginia in the top of the ninth with a two-run home run.[7] Eibner returned for his junior season with the Razorbacks, hitting .333 with 22 home runs. On the mound, Eibner went 3-5 in 58 innings for the Razorbacks in the regular season. In the 2010 Tempe, Arizona Super Regional, Eibner hit a game-tying home run with the Razorbacks down to their final strike, extending the game to extra innings where the Razorbacks lost in the 12th.[8] Following the 2010 season, Eibner became the fourth Razorback to be named both a freshman All-American and All-American, including teammate Zack Cox.[9] He was also a John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award Semifinalist, Second Team All-SEC, and ABCA/Rawlings First Team All-South Region player.[10] When asked about returning to Northwest Arkansas with the Naturals, Eibner said "I think it’s going to be a great homecoming and I’m real excited. I hope to have a warm welcome from the fans there. I miss playing there and I can’t wait to do it".[5]
