SERIES HISTORY: Washington has played St. Martin's each of the last four years (since the Saints revived the baseball program), and won all four contests. Last season, the Huskies got homers from Jay Garthwaite, Tyler Davidson, Ed Erickson and Ben Miller (his first career hit) in a 15-5 win. The Huskies won 7-0 in 1999, 13-12 in 1998 and 18-6 in 1997, the last game ever played at Graves Field. UCLA holds a commanding 18-4 record in the series with the UW. Last season, the Bruins won two of three in L.A. (2-1, 6-7, 12-5). In the first game, UCLA's Rob Henkel fanned 18 (including the first nine in the game) and Forrest Johnson led off the ninth with a solo homer for the win. The other three UW wins in the series all came in a series sweep at Husky Ballpark in 1999, including the game in which UCLA's Bill Scott homered four times in a 16-15 Husky win.
COACH "K": In eight seasons as the head coach of his alma mater, Ken Knutson has led the Dawgs to two Pac-10 championships, four Pac-10 Northern Division titles, two second-place finishes and three NCAA Regionals. His career overall record stands at 303-196 (.607). With those 303 wins, he is the second-winningest coach in UW history, trailing only Bob MacDonald (422). Before becoming the Husky head man in 1993, Knutson served as the Husky pitching coach for eight seasons. In 1985, his UW pitching staff led the nation with a 2.80 ERA. Knutson holds a 148-56 (.725) record in home games. He is 132-87 (.603) in conference games. Knutson has coached 35 first-team All-Pac-10 selections in eight seasons, and has been named league caoch of the year three times. A 1981 All-Pac-10 left-handed pitcher at the UW, he is joined by assistant coaches Joe Ross, Ed Gustafson, and Joe Weis and undergraduate assistant Daniel Jahn.
PROBABLE STARTERS: Here's a look at the probable starters at each position, with 2001 stats and notes:
Pos. Player, Year Avg.-HR-RBI Notes C -- Ben Johnson, Fr. .316-0-2 Started 5 of last 6 after no previous starts Tim Rice, Jr. .300-0-1 Hit safely in 5 of 7 starts since Thiel's injury Chad Yarbrough, So. .182-1-3 First career hit was HR March 28 vs. UPS 1B -- Bryan Johnson, So. .298-2-26 Only Husky to have played in all 29 games 2B -- John Otness, Fr. .375-0-15 Since taking over at 2B: 23-for-65, .354 SS -- Tila Reynolds, So. .290-4-17 Leads with two triples, co-leader with four HR 3B -- Michael Done, Jr. .413-4-21 Batted .611 (11-for-18) last weekend at Hilo OF -- Tyler Davidson, So. .330-1-23 Had two hits in each of four games at Hilo OF -- Jay Garthwaite, So. .292-3-28 Team leader in doubles (9) and RBI (23) OF -- Ben Miller, Jr. .361-3-11 Started all 4 at leadoff in Hilo, 5-for-5 Fri.

ONE YEAR OLDER: Washington fielded its youngest team since 1996 last season, with four freshmen in the everyday starting lineup and only one senior on the roster. The Huskies are hoping that they can repeat what happened with that young '96 squad, which went on to win Pac-10 Championships in 1997 and 1998. This season, Washington returns 24 players that played last season, plus two redshirts. Offensively, returning players started 66 percent of last year's games, and accounted for 64 percent of the Huskies' at bats, runs and hits. Retur ners hit 46 of the Dawgs' 67 home runs (69 percent) and stole 51 of 88 stolen bases (58 percent). On the mound, the Huskies are even more experienced. Members of the 2001 roster made 156 appearances last season and accounted for 77 percent (20) of the Huskies' 26 wins and 73 percent of starts (41 of 56). Returning pitchers worked 382 innings (79 percent) and fanned 300 (76 percent).
STILL YOUNG PUPS: While Washington is fielding a much more experienced team than it did last year, it's still a very young club. If you are to break down the starting players so far this year, you'll find that freshman or sophomores have earned two-thirds of the starts. Going with the notion that 10 players start each game (pitcher and DH included), and that the Huskies have played 29 games so far, 152 starts have gone to sophomores and 42 to freshmen, for a total of 194, or 67 percent of the 290 total starts.
FRIENDLY CONFINES: Washington was very tough at home in the 1990s, posting a mark of 160-52 (.755) over those 10 seasons. Under coach Ken Knutson, the Huskies have posted a remarkable 148-56 record in home games, good for a .725 mark. In 1998, the Huskies moved into Husky Ballpark and have notched a 69-34 (.669) record so far. In three seasons, the Huskies have averaged 30 home games a year after usually having played 15 to 20 each season at old Graves Field. This season, the Dawgs are scheduled to play 26 home games.
CUBA TRIP: Last September, the Husky baseball team travelled to Cuba for a week of baseball. The Dawgs were to play four games against the Cubans, with a fifth game pitting two mixed teams (half Huskies, half Cubans) against one another. Washington went 2-2 against teams made up of Cuban pros and the mixed game was rained out. UW was the first major college team to play in Cuba.
