The No. 6-ranked Oregon Ducks had a perfect ending Sunday for their three-game sweep with a 9-0 victory over the visiting Arizona Wildcats.

Oregon pitcher Jessica Moore (19-3) threw a perfect game over five innings for the Ducks' first-ever sweep of Arizona.

The No. 22-ranked Wildcats (27-17, 4-8 Pac 12) did not get a hit in their last two games with Oregon (36-6, 13-2) and managed just three runs in the first game of the series on Friday.

Moore retired all 15 batters in order, striking out six to improve her school career record to 835. It was the third no-hitter of her career.

Junior catcher Alexa Peterson led the Ducks at the plate with two homers, a solo shot in the second inning and a three-run shot in the third.
