  • SERIES HISTORY: Oregon State leads the all-time series against Washington, 218-197-2, in 417 all-time matchups. The Huskies have played OSU more times than any other opponent, including Washington State (403). Last season in Corvallis, the eventual NCAA champion Beavers won two of three games. The Huskies won the opener, 6-4, as Tim Lincecum struck out 16 in eight innings, ending OSU starter Dallas Buck's 14-game winning streak. In game two, OSU scored two in the seventh to break a 3-3 tie and won, 5-3. In the finale, Beavers starter Mike Stutes held the Huskies to one unearned run on three hits over eight innings in a 7-1 OSU victory. The last time the two teams met in Seattle, in 2005, the Beavers swept the series (7-0, 7-4, 3-1). UW head coach Ken Knutson is 41-37 all-time against Oregon State.

    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 518-340-2 (.603). 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 260-116-2 (.691) record in home games. He is 211-154 (.578) 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 518-340-2, 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. Knutson took over at his alma mater prior to the 1993 season and is in his 15th year in charge. Only Stanford's Mark Marquess has more seniority or more wins among current Pac-10 coaches.

    HUSKIES AT PRO PARKS: Friday's game at Safeco Field will mark the Huskies' first-ever appearance at the Seattle Mariners' current home. However, the Huskies did play 26 regular season games in the Kingdome between 1990 and 1996, when the UW used to host the annual "College Baseball Classic". The Huskies compiled an even 13-13 record in those games, which included two wins and a loss against this week's opponent, Oregon State. In 1993, the Huskies won a three-game, Pac-10 North series from the Beavers (4-1, 5-0, 0-4) in games played in the Kingdome as part of the Classic. The UW has also played in two tournaments in the Metrodome (1990 and 1997) in Minneapolis, the Huskies' only other games played on a big-league field.

    INJURY BUG: Washington has suffered a rash of recent injuries, greatly reducing the number of available players. Two regular outfielders are out for the remainder of the season: Kyle Conley and Andy Lentz. Additionally, Brett Kaluza missed last weekend due to illness and Ty Rasmussen suffered an arm injury during last Friday's game that may keep him out for a while. In the infield, second baseman Bradley Boyer missed six games due to an ankle injury, but returned last week. 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, 34 of the 37 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 34 in-state players, 31 are from the western part of the state (west of the Cascades) and 17 are from King County, where the UW is located.
