EUGENE, Ore. -- University of Oregon senior pitcher Jessica Moore was named Most Valuable Player of the NCAA Division I Women's Softball Championship Eugene Regional after posting two wins and a save in leading the host No. 3 Ducks (49-9) to the regional championship and a spot in next week's NCAA Super Regional round.

A right-hander from Sutter, Calif., Moore allowed only two runs over 17 innings, lowering her season ERA to 1.52. She surrendered 14 hits and two walks, while striking out 25. In Friday's 3-0 shutout over North Carolina, Moore (27-4) earned her 100th career victory for the Ducks.

Moore earned her second save of the season - and 11th career - combining with freshman southpaw Cheridan Hawkins on a 3-0 shutout of No. 25 Wisconsin to clinch the regional on Saturday. She was also MVP of the 2012 Eugene Regional.

The runner-up Badgers (44-13) were next with three selections, including right-hander Cassandra Darrah, who allowed a total of five hits over 13 innings in her final two starts of the regional.
