UCLA's Cody Decker Earns Pac-10 Player of the Week Honors

March 17, 2009

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Senior Cody Decker of the UCLA baseball team has captured Pac-10 Player of the Week honors for the second time in his career, as announced by the Pac-10 Conference office. Decker belted four home runs in five games last week, helping lead UCLA to a series victory at East Carolina over the weekend.

Decker batted .333 (6-for-18), totaling four homers, 10 RBI, five runs and two walks in five games last week. The resident of Santa Monica, Calif., logged a 1.000 slugging percentage as he vaulted into the team lead with six home runs and 17 RBI. Through Monday's games, Decker's total of six home runs is the third-highest mark among all Pac-10 players, and his 17 RBI-total is tied for fourth in the conference with Arizona's Jett Bandy.

In three games at East Carolina, Decker went 5-for-12 (.417) with three home runs, eight RBI and four runs. UCLA overcame a 9-4 deficit in game one of a Friday doubleheader, as Decker led the way with two homers and five RBI. That contest marked Decker's third career two-home run game. He belted a three-run homer in the series finale on Saturday afternoon, bringing UCLA to within 7-5 of East Carolina in the series finale.

Entering this weekend's Pac-10 series at USC, Decker is batting .274 (17-for-62) with a .375 on-base percentage and .581 slugging percentage. This season, Decker has started all 17 games for UCLA (16 as designated hitter, one at first base). He currently stands as the team's career leader in home runs (32), hits (131), RBI (117), runs (74) and at-bats (482).
