THIS WEEK: The Washington baseball team (18-8 overall, 1-2 in the Pac-10) continues an eight-game homestand (and a stretch where the UW plays 22 of 25 at home) this weekend when No. 18 Arizona (14-9 overall, 2-4 Pac-10) visits for a three-game series. The series opener will mark the Huskies' second appearance at Safeco Field. Last year, the Dawgs beat eventual national champion Oregon State, 6-4, at Safeco in front of 10,421 fans, a Pac-10 record for a conference game. First pitch Friday is at 6:30 p.m. Saturday (2:00 p.m.) and Sunday (1:00 p.m.), the series continues at Husky Ballpark. Friday's pitching matchup will feature UW lefty Nick Haughian vs. Arizona right-hander Preston Guilmet. On Saturday, UW righty Cam Nobles will square off against UA southpaw David Coulon and on Sunday, Washington RHP Jorden Merry will face Wildcats lefty Eric Berger. Next week, the Huskies host Portland Tuesday before BYU visits Seattle for a three-game, non-conference series Thursday through Saturday. Here's a look at this weekend's games:

Fri., April 4: Arizona at UW, SAFECO FIELD, 6:30 p.m. - RADIO: KIXI AM-880
Sat., April 5: Arizona at UW, 2 p.m. - RADIO: KKNW AM-1150
Sun., April 6: Arizona at UW, 1 p.m. - RADIO: KKNW AM-1150

Note: Friday's game vs. Arizona and next Tuesday's game (April 8) vs. Portland will air on KIXI AM-880 due to a conflict with playoff hockey.

SERIES HISTORY: Arizona holds a 15-14 all-time record against the Huskies. Last year, the Wildcats swept the UW in a three-game series in Tucson, winning by scores of 7-0, 13-4 and 17-8, in the next-to-last weekend of the regular season. The last time that the 'Cats visited Seattle, in 2006, Washington won two of three, taking games one (7-5) and three (4-3) while Arizona easily claimed game two by a score of 15-0. Ken Knutson is 13-15 against the Wildcats.

COACH "K": In 2004, Husky baseball coach Ken Knutson became the winningest baseball coach in the history of the program. Last season, he became only the 17th coach in Pac-10 history to reach 500 career wins. Those are just two of the many accomplishments on Knutson's impressive resume. In his 15-plus seasons at the helm of his alma mater's baseball team, Knutson has led the Dawgs to two Pac-10 championships, four Pac-10 Northern Division titles and six NCAA Regionals. His career record now stands at 544-355-2 (.605). Before becoming the head man in 1993, Knutson served as the UW pitching coach for eight seasons. In 1985, his staff led the NCAA with a 2.80 ERA. Knutson holds a 280-121-2 (.697) record in home games. He is 217-164 (.570) in Pac-10 games. He's coached 52 first-team All-Pac-10 selections in 15 seasons, and has been named league coach of the year three times. A 1981 All-Pac-10 pitcher at the UW, he is joined by assistants Joe Ross, Donny Harrel, and Tighe Dickinson.

Huskies At Safeco Field: Washington's home game against Arizona on Friday, April 4, will be played at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners. The UW and UA will square off in the first game of a three-game Pac-10 series at 6:30 p.m. that night. Tickets are $8 and group tickets (15 or more) are only $5. UW students will be admitted free. Last year, the Huskies beat Oregon State, 6-2, in front of 10,421 fans at Safeco Field in their first ever game at the Mariners' home, setting a Pac-10 attendance record for a conference game. Prior to last season, UW last played on a big-league field in 1997, when the Huskies playing a tournament at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. The Huskies also used to host a tournament in the Kingdome, the Mariners' old home, and played an exhibition vs. the Ms in the Kingdome in 1986.

Rugged Pac-10: Any team that plays in the Pac-10 can say that it has a pretty tough schedule. But this year, all the more so. In the three most widely respected college baseball polls, three different Pac-10 teams were ranked No. 1 this preseason. Collegiate Baseball magazine was first, ranking Arizona No. 1 in its preseason top 40. Then, Baseball America issued its preseason top 25 with UCLA holding the No. 1 spot, just in front of Arizona. Then, the preseason USA Today/ESPN coaches' poll was released with Arizona State voted as the preseason No. 1 team. Then, add in the fact that Oregon State is the two-time defending national champion and isn't even one of those three No. 1 teams and the Pac-10 is clearly a challenge this season.

Washington's Team: The Husky baseball roster has always been dominated by in-state players, as most college baseball rosters are. The squad consistently has about 90 percent of players from the state of Washington. This year's squad, however, represents a first in the Ken Knutson era as all 38 players on the roster played their high school ball in Washington. In fact, the majority of players (20 out of 38) attended high school in King County, the county in which the UW is located, and 32 of 38 are from either King County or the two counties that abut King Country from the south and north (Pierce and Snohomish, respectively). In other words, 32 of 38 players on this year's team come from within about a 40-mile radius of the UW's Seattle campus.
