THIS WEEK: The Washington baseball team (34-24 overall, 9-12 in the Pac-10 Conference) closes out the regular season this week when the Washington State Cougars (35-21, 9-12 Pac-10) come to Husky Ballpark for a three-game series that marks the final weekend of the regular season. Friday's game gets underway at 6:30 p.m., Saturday's game starts at 2:00 p.m. and Sunday's regular-season finale is set for a 1:00 p.m. start. The Huskies are expected to send RHP Tim Lincecum to the mound Friday night, but at this point, the starters for Saturday and Sunday's game have yet to be determined. Entering the weekend, the Huskies are still hoping to make the NCAA Tournament, which begins June 2 and this series could prove crucial in that regard. The 64-team tournament field will be announced Monday, May 29, at 9:30 a.m. PDT on ESPN. Here's a look at this weekend's games.

SERIES HISTORY: Washington State leads the all-time series against the Huskies, 225-172. This Sunday's game will mark the 400th UW-WSU game. Under 14th-year head coach Ken Knutson, the UW is 55-25 against its cross-state rival, including a 26-12 record in games played at Washington. Last year, the Huskies swept a three-game series in Pullman in the only three UW-WSU games of the season. In the opener, the UW trailed, 4-0, after three innings, but scored four in the fourth and then 11 over the final three innings for a 17-5 win. Curt Rindal hit two doubles and Matt Hague homered. In game two, the Huskies got three two-run homers in the second inning - from Rindal, Mike Rundle and Zach Clem - in a 13-5 win. In the series finale, Clem went 4-for-4 with a homer and four RBI while Rindal belted two homers in a 14-2 win. Brandon McKerney threw seven innings in his first conference start for the win.
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 495-319-2 (.608). 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 244-108-2 (.692) record in home games. He is 203-147 (.580) 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 undergraduate 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 32 of the 34 players on the current 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 32 in-state players, 26 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 477, he's notched 174 more than Jeff Heaverlo's old mark of 303) and April 28 vs. Arizona, he took over the top spot in career wins with his 28th, passing Mark Smith's record of 27. He's also moved into the top spot on the UW career start and innings charts and has broken his own single-season strikeouts record (he actually has the top three single-season Ks totals). May 5 at Oregon State, he passed USC's Rik Currier as the Pac-10's career strikeouts record-holder. And, with a good end to the season (with 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 (51) HBPs, has hit 20 home runs this season and 41 in his career, placing him only two behind the school record for home runs in a season (22, Chad Boudon, 2003) and only one short of the career mark of 42 (Ed Erickson, 1997-2000).
