WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Senior Cody Decker of the UCLA baseball team has captured Pac-10 Player of the Week honors for the second time this spring and the third time in his career, as announced Tuesday by the Pac-10 Conference office. Decker went 7-for-15 with three home runs, five RBI and four runs in four games last week.

Decker has become the first UCLA ballplayer to earn Pac-10 Player of the Week honors twice or more in one season since Forrest Johnson earned the weekly honor twice in 2000 (March 14, April 3).

Decker currently leads UCLA with 15 home runs, 37 RBI and a .667 slugging percentage and is tied for the team lead with 34 runs. The Bruins' first baseman from Santa Monica, Calif., has hit safely in 13 of UCLA's last 15 contests, belting eight home runs and collecting 18 RBI in that span.

Last Tuesday, Decker went 3-for-5 with one homer, two runs and two RBI in a non-conference loss at UC Riverside. In a 7-5 series-opening victory against Oregon State, he went 2-for-3 with one home run, one double, two RBI and one run. The following afternoon, Decker belted his third home run in as many games, going 1-for-3 with one walk. He went 1-for-4 with one single in the series finale, a 5-2 UCLA victory.

Entering Tuesday's home game against Long Beach State, Decker is second in the Pac-10 with 15 home runs, trailing Washington's Kyle Conley (16 homers). Among the conference's offensive leaders, Decker ranks fourth in slugging percentage (.667), fifth in total bases (96) and sixth in RBI (37).

Decker was previously named Pac-10 Player of the Week on March 17, after having gone 6-for-18 with four home runs, 10 RBI, five runs and two walks in five games the previous week (two home games, three games at East Carolina).
