Junior pitcher Adam Plutko (Glendora, Calif./Glendora HS) of the UCLA baseball team was named the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week (June 10-16).
Plutko remained undefeated in postseason play in his career, leading UCLA to a 2-1 victory over LSU in Game One of the College World Series. Plutko earned his sixth postseason win, picking up the victory after throwing seven innings and allowing just one run on four hits against the No. 4 national seed Tigers. He also had two strikeouts. He improved his career postseason ERA to 0.87 and moved into sole possession of second place on UCLA's all-time career wins list, logging career win No. 28.
This is Plutko's first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and second of his career.
