SERIES HISTORY: Oregon State leads the all-time series vs. Washington, 216-178-2. The teams first played one another during the 1911 season. With 396 total meetings, the UW has played more games against the Beavers than any other opponent aside from Washington State (397). Husky head coach Ken Knutson is 40-35 all-time vs. OSU. Last year, the Beavers swept a series from the Huskies in Seattle, 7-0, 7-4 and 3-1. The UW batted just .140 (13-for-93) in the series, with only one extra-base hit. Two seasons ago in Corvallis, the Huskies took two of three, losing the opener (7-3) before winning the next two, 26-14 and 8-5. The Huskies are 79-41-1 all-time against next week's opponent, Portland, including two wins and a loss this season.
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 491-312-2 (.611). 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 243-104-2 (.699) record in home games. He is 202-142 (.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).
CHASING THE RECORDS: Two veteran Huskies have taken aim at some of the Huskies' (and the Pac-10's) big single-season and career records this season: senior left fielder Zach Clem and junior right-handed pitcher Tim Lincecum. Lincecum has already knocked off several major records as he broke the school's career strikeouts record early this season (with 444, he's notched 131 more than Jeff Heaverlo's old mark of 303) and last Friday vs. Arizona, he took over the top spot in career wins with his 28th, passing Mark Smith's record of 27. Three more starts will give him that UW career record as well and he's already holds the career innings and walks records, as well as the single-season strikeouts mark (he actually has the top three single-season Ks totals). With just six more strikeouts, he'll break the Pac-10 record (444, Rik Currier, USC, 1998-2001). And, with a good end to the season (and possible postseason action), he could possibly became only the seventh pitcher in NCAA Division I history to record 500 career strikeouts. Clem, who already holds the less auspicious school records for single-season (24) and career (48) HBPs, has hit 19 home runs this season and 40 in his career, placing him only three behind the school record for home runs in a season (22, Chad Boudon, 2003) and only two short of the career mark of 42 (Ed Erickson, 1997-2000).
