Junior pitcher James Kaprielian of the UCLA baseball team has been named the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for May 11-17.

Kaprielian combined with David Berg to throw UCLA’s first ever no-hitter on Friday night in a 1-0 shutout of Arizona in 10 innings. Kaprielian pitched nine no-hit innings, recording a season-high tying 11 strikeouts and four walks, while totaling 113 pitches. The Pac-12’s strikeout leader struck out six batters over a stretch from the third to the seventh inning where he retired 14 consecutive Wildcats. Kaprielian has thrown 23.2 consecutive scoreless innings, not allowing a run in his last three starts. He also dropped his season ERA below two, to 1.94 and pushed his strikeout total to 105 for the season, the second consecutive season over 100 strikeouts for him.

This is Kaprielian’s first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of his career.
