Oro Valley Ironwood Ridge junior Josh Darang pitched his way out of a couple of jams and held No. 19 Phoenix Arcadia (20-11) scoreless in the first round of the Division II baseball playoffs Saturday afternoon. Darang improved his record to 6-1 on the year while the No. 14 Nighthawks picked up their 21st of the season (21-8) thanks to their 3-0 win over the Titans.

Chris Moon was the consensus 2007 Southern Arizona baseball player of the year. The Tucson High pitcher/outfielder got the attention of the Atlanta Braves and was drafted in the 35th round. Moon chose to play for the University of Arizona instead and signed up with Andy Lopez that fall. It was that class of commitments that eventually won the NCAA championship for the Wildcats in 2012 but Moon would not be one of them.
