UW Opens Pac-10 Slate At Arizona
March 22, 2005
THIS WEEK: The Washington baseball team (13-8) gets the Pac-10 Conference season underway this weekend when the Huskies face No. 13 Arizona (16-9) this Thursday through Saturday in Tucson, Ariz. The Huskies, who have won 11 of their last 13 games, climbed back into one national poll this week, earning the No. 29 spot in the Collegiate Baseball top-30. Arizona, coming off a 2-1 series loss to new No. 1 team Cal State Fullerton, have gone 7-9 since opening the season 9-0. This weekend's games from Tucson will air live on KKNW AM-1150. Thursday and Friday, gametime is 7:00 p.m. MST (6:00 p.m. PST) while Saturday's game begins at 1:00 p.m. MST (noon PST). Here's this week's schedule, with the Huskies' probable starting pitchers:
Thu., Mar. 24: UW at Arizona, 6:00 p.m. PST, KKNW AM-1150 -- RHP Tim Lincecum (4-2, 3.03)
Fri., Mar. 25: UW at Arizona, 6:00 p.m. PST, KKNW AM-1150 -- RHP Kyle Parker (4-3, 4.55)
Sat., Mar. 26: UW at Arizona, 12:00 p.m. PST, KKNW AM-1150 -- RHP Matt Kasser (2-2, 3.90)
SERIES HISTORY: Thanks to a three-game sweep last season, the Huskies hold a 10-9 series advantage all-time against Arizona. Prior to the 1999 merger of the Pac-10's two divisions, the UW had played Arizona only once in its history. That game came in the 1992 NCAA West I Regional in Tucson when Pac-10 North champ Washington beat Six-Pac winner Arizona, 6-5. In 1999, the Huskies won two of three in Tucson. In 2000, the Cats took two of three in Seattle. The following year in Tucson, Arizona swept at three-game series to close out the regular season. In 2002, the Huskies took two of three in Seattle and Arizona won two of three the following season at the U of A. In last season's series in Seattle, Washington won 6-1, 7-6 and 12-11, sweeping the College World Series-bound Wildcats.
COACH 'K': Last season, 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 12-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, two other second-place finishes and six NCAA Regionals. His career overall record now stands at 441-281-2 (.610). Before becoming the Husky head man prior to the 1993 season, 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 217-90-2 (.696) record in home games. He is 182-124 (.595) in Pac-10 games. Knutson has coached 44 first-team All-Pac-10 selections in 12 seasons, and has been named league coach of the year three times. A 1981 All-Pac-10 left-handed pitcher at the UW, he is joined by assistants Joe Ross, Donny Harrel, and Gregg Swenson.

TOUGH SCHEDULE: Counting those in the 'others receiving votes' category, the preseason Sports Weekly/ESPN coaches' poll ranked 66 teams this season. Washington, which tied with Pac-10 foe Arizona for the No. 12 spot in that poll, will play a total of 31 games against teams that received votes in the preseason ranking. Those 31 games come against 11 different teams, including six conference opponents. The Huskies will play a total of 11 games against four teams ranked in the top 12 in the preseason poll -- three each against No. 6 Stanford, No. 9 Arizona State and No. 12 Arizona, plus two at No. 10 Texas A&M. Well-respected baseball website boydsworld.com ranks the Huskies' schedule as the ninth-toughest in the nation.
NORTHWEST FLAVOR: As is usually the case, the Husky baseball roster is made up primarily of players from the state of Washington. This year, however, it's nearly unanimous as 35 of the 36 players on the team are from the state of Washington. The only non-Washingtonian on the team is senior second baseman Mike Rundle, from Bend, Oregon. However, Rundle, in his first season with the Huskies, played last season at Gonzaga, which is located in Spokane, Wash. Of the 35 in-state players, 29 are from the western part of the state (west of the Cascades).
GETTING HOT: After opening the 2005 season with 11 straight games away from home, the Huskies' return to the new FieldTurf surface at Husky Ballpark was evidently very comforting. The Huskies won all seven games of the first homestand of the season, beating St. Martin's 10-1, sweeping a three-game series from UC Santa Barbara (6-1, 6-5, 17-4), beating Portland 8-1 and closing with two wins over Pacific, 15-2 and 19-12. The Huskies then took two of three in a series at Cal Poly last weekend to post a record of 11-2 over their last 13 games. In those 13, Washington has hit .315 with 27 homers and 102 runs scored. The Huskies have pitched for a 3.63 team ERA and have made only six errors in that stretch. Zach Clem, Brent Lillibridge and Taylor Johnson have been the hottest Husky hitters over the last 13. Clem is 16-for-38 (.421) with four hoemrs and 13 RBI while Lillibridge has batted .391 with six home runs and 17 batted in. Johnson has hit .386 with four homers, 14 RBI and 11 walks. On the mound, Tim Lincecum has won all four of his starts over those 13, going 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA. He's allowed only 10 hits and four earned runs while striking out 42 over 28 innings. Senior reliever David Dowling is 2-0 with two saves and a 2.04 ERA over 17.2 innings in the last 13 games.
