Diamond Dawgs To Host Wildcats This Weekend
April 26, 2006
THIS WEEK: The Washington baseball team (28-15 overall, 6-6 in Pac-10 play) opens the second half of the 24-game Pac-10 schedule this weekend when Arizona (18-20, 5-7) visits Husky Ballpark for a three-game series. Nine of the Huskies 12 remaining league games are home games. The UW re-entered the national rankings this week as Collegiate Baseball's top-30 tabbed the Dawgs as the No. 27 team in the nation. There will be no live radio for the Arizona series, but live audio, video and statistics will be available via the 'Dawg Channel' at gohuskies.com. Husky ace RHP Tim Lincecum will start Friday's game. The other two day's starter are yet to be determined, though RHP Elliott Cribby will start one of them. Next Tuesday, perennial NAIA power Lewis-Clark State makes its annual visit to Husky Ballpark for a 6:30 p.m. game before the Huskies hit the road to face No. 5 Oregon State May 5-7 in Corvallis, the Huskies' final conference road trip of the season.

SERIES HISTORY: Washington and Arizona have split their 22 all-time meetings vs. one another, winning 11 games apiece. All but one of those 22 games have come in three-game series in each of the last seven seasons. The first ever UW-UA game came at the 1992 NCAA Regional in Tucson, where sixth-seeded Washington beat the top-seeded 'Cats, 6-5. Last year in Tucson, the Huskies lost two of three in the first Pac-10 series of the season. The last time the Wildcats visited Seattle, in 2004, the Huskies swept a College World Series-bound Arizona team. The Huskies have beaten Lewis-Clark State 17 of 32 all-time, including the last three meetings in a row.
COACH 'K': In 2004, Husky 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. Now in his 14th season 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. His career record now stands at 489-310-2 (.612). 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 241-102-2 (.701) record in home games. He is 200-141 (.587) in Pac-10 games. He's coached 46 first-team All-Pac-10 selections 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, Tighe Dickinson and undergrad assistant Mike Rundle.

NO-HITTER & THE CYCLE: Husky players have already pulled off two of the rarest feats in baseball this season as sophomore third baseman Matt Stevens hit for the cycle Feb. 18 and Tim Lincecum and Nick Hagadone combined for a no-hitter Mar. 12. Stevens went 5-for-6 with a single, a double, a triple and two home runs Feb. 18 at Cal State Northridge to become the first Husky to hit for the cycle since Jon Vander Griend in 1994. March 12 vs. Santa Clara, Lincecum threw six innings and Hagadone three in a 9-0 no-hitter over Santa Clara, the first no-hit game by the Huskies since April 3, 1985, when Bob Goucher and Pete Tjaarda combined for a rain-shortened, five-inning no-hitter over Seattle U. (10-0).
NO-HITTER UNCOVERS HISTORY: Both the Pac-10 Conference and UW baseball media guides have long listed only three no-hitters in Husky history, all during the 1950s. However, the incomplete statistical records for most years prior to the 1990s left plenty of room for other past no-no's that had been lost in history. Since Tim Lincecum and Nick Hagadone combined for their no-hitter March 12 vs. Santa Clara, the existence of four previously unacknowledged Husky no-hitters have come to light. First was March 22, 1969, when Gary Huson threw a seven-inning no-hitter in a 6-0 win over San Jose State in the Huskies' season-opener. On March 30, 1974, Steve Bazoski threw a seven-inning no-hitter in a 9-0 win at Portland. On April 14, 1978, Rick Anderson threw 10 innings of no-hit ball in a 0-0 tie vs. Oregon State. The game was suspended by darkness after 10 and went down in the books as a tie. Finally, on April 3, 1985, Bob Goucher (four innings) and Pete Tjaarda (one) combined for a rain-shortened, five-inning no-hitter in a 10-0 win over Seattle University.
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 33 of the 35 players on the preseason roster are from the state of Washington. The only non-Washingtonians on the team is are freshman pitchers Bryce Mooney (Lake Oswego, Ore.) and Geoff Nichols (Portland, Ore.). For those unfamiliar with Northwest geography, both Lake Oswego and Portland are within a few miles of the border with Washington. Of the 33 in-state players, 28 are from the western part of the state (west of the Cascades).
PRESEASON ACCOLADES: The preseason publications offered a mixed forecast for the 2006 Husky Baseball season, but that's not all bad. After all, the Pac-10 preseason coaches' poll, which selected the Dawgs to finish seventh in the conference, made the same prognositcation in 2003, when the Dawgs took third. In 2004, the preseason poll slotted the UW fifth, but the Huskies took second. The Huskies earned 10 points in the Sports Weekly/ESPN coaches' poll, good for a No. 37 ranking. Washington was ranked No. 38 in the Collegiate Baseball preseason top-40. Collegiate Baseball also selected Tim Lincecum a third-team preseason All-American. The NCBWA chose Lincecum as a second-team All-American, while Baseball American put him on the third time. Lincecum also made the Roger Clemens Award watch list. Baseball America, in its lengthy season preview, had a lot to say about the Huskies. Lincecum, along with the All-America recognition, was a preseason-All-Conference pick, the league's No. 9 2006 draft prospect in the Pac-10 and the No. 31 college draft prospect in the nation. Lincecum's breaking ball was also recognized as the best in both the conference and the nation. Fellow junior pitcher Kyle Parker was chosen as the No. 92 draft prospect in the nation while sophomore OF/P Matt Hague was tabbed a preseason All-Pac-10 first-teamer and the No. 39 sophomore player in the country. Finally, SS Danny Cox was listed as the nation's 42nd-best freshman.
