THIS WEEK: The Washington baseball team (26-23 overall, 9-9 in the Pac-10) plays its final road games of the regular season this weekend when the Huskies travel to Tucson for a three-game series with 14th-ranked Arizona (36-13, 11-7). The Huskies, despite losing two of three last weekend at Stanford, remain in fourth place in the Pac-10 standings, two games back of the third-place Wildcats, who also lost two of three last weekend - at home to USC. Washington will send out the following starting rotation to face the `Cats: RHP Jason Erickson (4-1, 3.79) on Friday, RHP Elliott Cribby (1-1, 5.61) and RHP Jorden Merry (6-7, 4.99) on Sunday. None of the three games will air live on radio, but fans can catch a live audio broadcast at no cost on the "Dawg Channel" at gohuskies.com. After the Arizona series, the Huskies return home for the final series of the season, May 25-27 vs. California at Husky Ballpark. The NCAA tournament selections for the 16 regionals (regionals to be played June 1-4) will be announced on Monday, May 28. Here's a look at this week's games:

SERIES HISTORY: Washington and Arizona have faced one another only 25 times, with the Huskies holding a slim 13-12 lead in the series. Twenty-four of the 25 games have come in three-game series over the last eight seasons, during with the series is tied at 12-12. Prior to that, the only UW-UA game was a first-round matchup at the 1992 NCAA West I Regional in Tucson, when the sixth-seeded Dawgs upset the top-seeded 'Cats, 6-5. Last season in Seattle, the Huskies won two of three vs. Arizona. In the opener, Tim Lincecum went the distance in a 7-4 UW win. The following day, Arizona won in a 15-0 rout. On Sunday, the Huskies won, 4-3, as Brett Kaluza drove in the tying run in the eighth and then scored. Lincecum got the save. The Dawgs won only one of three in Tucson in 2005, their last trip to the U of A.

COACH "K": In 2004, Husky baseball coach Ken Knutson became the winningest baseball coach in the history of the program. That accomplishment is just one item on Knutson's impressive resume. In his 14-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. He recently became the 17th Pac-10 coach to reach 500 wins and his career record now stands at 524-343-2 (.604). 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 265-117-2 (.693) record in home games. He is 214-157 (.577) in Pac-10 games. He's coached 50 first-team All-Pac-10 selections in 14 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.

KNUTSON PASSES #500: Husky head coach Ken Knutson is already the winningest baseball coach in UW history, but he reached another milestone on March 5. Knutson, who enters this week with a career record of 524-343-2, won his 500th career game on March 5 vs. Southern Utah. Entering this season, only 16 Pac-10 coaches had ever reached 500 career victories, a group than includes legends like USC's Rod Dedeaux, Arizona's Jerry Kindall and Jim Brock and Bobby Winkles of Arizona State.

HUSKIES AT SAFECO FIELD: Washington played its first game ever at Safeco Field on May 4, beating then-No. 8 Oregon State, 9-6. A crowd of 10,421 watched the Husky win, marking the largest-ever attendance for a conference game in Pac-10 history. The old record of 9,772 was set in Tucson for an Arizona-Arizona State game in 1980. The attendance was also the second-most ever for a Husky baseball game, just shy of the 10,688 who attended the NCAA Regional final game vs. Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss., in 1997.

INJURY BUG: Washington has suffered a rash of recent injuries, greatly reducing the number of available players. Three regular outfielders are likely out for the remainder of the season: Kyle Conley, Andy Lentz and Jake Rife (who could possibly return). Additionally, Brett Kaluza missed two weeks due to illness (he made his first start since May 15 vs. Gonzaga) and Ty Rasmussen suffered an arm injury during the April 27 game, but managed to return a week later. In the infield, second baseman Bradley Boyer missed six games due to an ankle injury, but returned three weeks ago. SS Brian Pearl missed several games earlier due to a back problem. Behind the plate, catchers Joey Dunn, Max Kwan, Bryce Anderson and Ryan Scott have all missed significant time due to injury while, on the mound, the Huskies missed Brandon McKerney for the first part of the season and recently discovered that Cam Nobles' season is over due to an injury.

NORTHWEST FLAVOR: As is usually the case, the Husky baseball roster is made up primarily of players from the state of Washington. This year, 35 of the 38 players on the current roster are from the state of Washington. The only non-Washingtonians on the team is are sophomore pitchers Bryce Mooney (Lake Oswego, Ore.), Geoff Nichols (Portland, Ore.) and freshman infielder Travis Nishioka (Honolulu, Hawaii). For those unfamiliar with Northwest geography, both Lake Oswego and Portland are within a few miles of the border with Washington. Of the 35 in-state players, 32 are from the western part of the state (west of the Cascades) and 17 are from King County, where the UW is located.
