THIS WEEK: The Washington baseball team (25-15 overall, 5-10 in the Pac-10 Conference) opens a 10-game homestand this weekend, the first five games of which will come against old Northwest opponents. The Huskies, who played only three home games the entire month of April (and 13 of the last 15 on the road), take on Oregon State (28-18, 8-7) and Portland (18-28) in their next five games in the last part of a stretch that will see the UW play 13 straight games against Northwest teams. The OSU series opens Friday night with a 6:30 game and continues with 1:00 p.m. games Saturday and Sunday. Tuesday and Wednesday, the Dawgs take on Portland at 6:30 on Tuesday and 4:00 p.m. Wednesday. The homestand continues May 12-14 against Arizona State and closes out May 15-16 vs. Gonzaga. Here's a look at this weekend's games vs. OSU, with probable starting pitchers:

SERIES HISTORY: The Beavers lead the all-time series vs. Washington with a 205-164-1 series advantage. Earlier this season (March 6-7), the Huskies split a pair of non-conference games with the Beavers in Corvallis. In the first game, the Huskies scored five in the first inning and jumped out to a 9-3 lead before hanging on for a 10-7 win. Tila Reynolds went 2-for-4 with three runs, a double and a homer. Marc Rittenhouse went 3-for-4 wit two doubles and a straight steal of home. In the second game, the Beavers belted seven homers en route to a 17-3 drubbing of the Dawgs. Tyler Davidson went 3-for-3 in that one. Last year, OSU won four of five meetings against the Huskies, sweeping a two-game, non-league series in Seattle before taking two of three in the conference series in Corvallis. Husky head coach Ken Knutson is 30-25 vs. the Beavers.
COACH "K": In eight-plus 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 310-200 (.608). With those 310 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 149-57 (.723) record in home games. He is 135-90 (.600) 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. .263-2-8 Two-out, two-run HR in ninth beat L-C State Jefferson Thiel, So. .294-2-12 Returned to lineup as DH last week 1B -- Bryan Johnson, So. .281-3-31 Hit three-run homer in March 6 win at OSU 2B -- Marc Rittenhouse, Sr. .364-1-6 Since returning from injury: 10-for-22 (.455) John Otness, Fr. .333-0-15 Hasn't played in last five SS -- Tila Reynolds, So. .300-5-24 Homered and doubled in March 6 win at OSU 3B -- Michael Done, Jr. .358-6-28 16-for-38 (.421) with runners in scoring pos.

COMING BACK OFF THE DL: The middle of the 2001 Washington baseball team was most notable for the number of big injuries and the game they forced several important players to miss. In a two-week rash of injuries, the Huskies lost their starting second baseman, center fielder and catcher, as well as their No. 1 starting pitcher to injury. However, in the last two weeks, all four of those players have returned. Senior 2B Marc Rittenhouse, a four-year starter, suffered a ligament injury to his left thumb prior to the season starting, but played the first 13 games before having surgery March 15. He came back April 25 vs. Lewis-Clark State. Jefferson Thiel, a freshman All-America catcher last year, suffered a ligament tear in his throwing elbow and sat out 15 games from March 27 until his return April 25 vs. L-C State. Brandon Jacobson, a sophomore CF, suffered a hand/wrist injury March 21 vs. Washington State. He sat out 15 games before coming back to play April 17 vs. Portland. Finally, sophomore RHP Sean White, who had emerged as the No. 1 starter on the mound, came out of the March 25 Stanford game after one inning due to shoulder tendonitis. He came back last Tuesday, April 24, against Lewis-Clark State after missing, perhaps, four starts.
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 40 games so far, 208 starts have gone to sophomores and 62 to freshmen, for a total of 270, or 68 percent of the 400 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 149-57 record in home games, good for a .723 mark. In 1998, the Huskies moved into Husky Ballpark and have notched a 70-35 (.667) 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 25 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.
