After walking the first batter he faced, Tucson pitcher Alex Robles settled down and tossed seven shutout innings in the championship game of the Chris Moon Memorial Classic, leading the host Badgers to a 2-0 win over Las Vegas (Nev.) Rancho on Friday at Cherry Field.

The four-day tournament featured 12 teams from four states and is named after Moon, a former Badgers standout who died in Afghanistan three years ago from injuries he sustained when he stepped on a roadside bomb while serving with the Army.

Robles, a senior, struck out a season-high 11 batters and surrendered just one hit in his complete game to help the Division I top-ranked Badgers to 16-3.
