WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Sophomore Adam Plutko of the UCLA baseball team has earned Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honors for the second time this season, as announced by the conference office Monday.

Plutko limited Purdue to one run and two hits in 8.1 innings in the first game of a non-conference doubleheader on Saturday, securing the victory as UCLA defeated the Boilermakers, 5-1.

The right-hander from Upland, Calif., recorded seven strikeouts and no walks and carried a perfect game into the sixth inning. Plutko did not allow any baserunners until Purdue's David Miller singled up the middle with one out in the top of the sixth.

Plutko allowed just three Purdue hitters to reach base, pitching into the ninth inning for the second time this season. He improved to 6-3, lowering his ERA to a 3.38 mark.

This marks the second time this season and the third time in his career that Plutko has captured Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honors. He also earned the award on March 13, 2012, after throwing a complete game shutout at Georgia, and on May 9, 2011, after having fired a complete game shutout at Oregon.

Ranked No. 11 by Baseball America, UCLA returns to action at Pepperdine on Tuesday. Game time at Eddy D. Field Stadium in Malibu, Calif., is 3 p.m.
