CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. - The No. 9 University of Oregon softball team (13-3) raised its win streak to six games with its 3-1 win in Sunday's Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic finale over San Diego State (8-7).

In her second complete game of the season, senior Jessica Moore (7-2) struck out 10, walked two, and gave up three hits.

At the plate, junior shortstop Courtney Ceo (2-for-3) posted her fifth multi-hit game of the slate as the Ducks' first six players in the line-up all hit safely.

Among those with hits was junior first baseman Kailee Cuico, who extended her team-best hitting streak to 11 games with a single on a 1-2 pitch in her fifth-inning final at-bat.

In the third inning, sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda knocked in the game's first run on a two-out single through the right side. Ceo scored on the play after she safely laid down a bunt the at-bat before, and stole second base.

In the fourth inning, senior second baseman Kaylan Howard (2-for-3) drove in Ceo again with a homer to right field. Her third four-bagger of the season also was her 28th career-wise - still eighth-best all-time for UO - and two shy of teammate Samantha Pappas (seventh, 30).

SDSU starter Rebecca Arbino struck out five, walked none, gave up seven hits, and all three of her runs allowed were earned in the complete game.

At the plate, three Aztecs hit safely once - Kayla Jordan (1-for-3), Kamerin May (1-for-3) and Patrice Jackson (1-for-3). May knocked in the returning NCAA qualifers' lone run in the sixth inning with a two-out single, and scored Jordan who had doubled to right field.

Winning her third start of the tourney, the returning All-American Moore moved atop the Ducks' all-time list for career appearances (145) past former great Connie McMurren (second, 142). Moore also became the first Duck to stake 80 wins in a career, and also moved to second all-time in innings (750.1) past Susan Voeller (third, 735.0).

Overall for the weekend, she staked a 1.31 ERA, 19 strikeouts, four walks and seven hits in her 16.0 innings, and held foes to a .130 hitting mark.

Earlier Sunday, UO beat UNLV (4-2), after it topped Virginia Friday night (13-0 (5 innings) and Cal Poly (2-1) and Nebraska (11-2 (6)) on Saturday.

Overall for the five games at the Big League Dreams Park near Palm Springs, two Oregon starters topped .400 with their 6-for-15 weekends - Howard (HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB, 1 SB) and Ceo (2B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 SB).

Four others starters topped .300 - Lindvall (.385, 5-for-13, 2 RBI, 2 BB), Cuico (.385, 5-for-13, 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 12 RBI), Takeda (.353, 6-for-17, 3B, HR, 5 RBI, SB) and freshman utility player Koral Costa (.300, 3-for-10, RBI, BB).

Logging a 0.00 ERA and allowing only one hit for the second straight tourney, freshman left-hander Cheridan Hawkins went 2-0 in the circle. She ended with 15 strikeouts and three walks in her 11.0 innings, and held opponents to a .030 batting average.

Looking ahead, UO travels later this week to the Citrus Classic in Orlando, March 1-3.

Oregon opens play vs. fellow WCWS returnee LSU and NCAA regional veteran Long Island on Friday, then faces Boston College and Temple on Saturday, and a third NCAA returnee in Michigan and Pittsburgh on Sunday.
