Notes: Bruins ace Plutko earns top honors
UCLA's Adam Plutko, left, didn't have much to do Tuesday as he chats with fellow pitcher Grant Watson before the start of the College World Series championship game. Plutko had already helped give the Bruins a 1-0 series lead with his pitching in Monday's opener.

Adam Plutko was aware of some of the past winners of the Most Outstanding Player award at the College World Series, and found it hard to believe that his name is now on that elite list.
“I don't know if I'll ever really think of myself in that club, but I'm honored,” the UCLA pitcher said. “I was just excited to be here. ... I was ready coming in. Our whole team was ready.”
