SEATTLE - The Washington baseball team (19-10-1 overall and 5-4 in the Pac-10) takes a week off from Pac-10 Conference play this week.
Monday and Tuesday, the Huskies play host to Oregon State (19-11, 4-5) in a pair of non-conference games at Husky Ballpark. Monday's first pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, game time is 2:30 p.m. The Huskies are expected to start Richie Lentz (3-2, 6.29) against OSU's Jonah Nickerson (2-0, 6.75) in a matchup of two freshman right-handers.
Tuesday's starting pitchers for both teams are yet to be determined.

After the two games vs. the Beavers, the Huskies hit the road for one of their longest-ever road trips. Washington will travel to face Georgia Tech (20-14 overall, 4-5 ACC) in a three-game series at Russ Chandler Stadium in Atlanta. Washington's longest trip ever was to the Florida Marlins' spring training site in Jupiter, Fla., for a season-opening tournament in 1998.
Friday and Saturday's games begin at 7:00 p.m. EDT (4:00 p.m. PDT). Sunday's finale is a 1:00 p.m. EDT (10:00 a.m. PDT) start. All three games will air on KKNW AM-1150, though Sunday's game will air on tape delay, beginning at 12 noon PDT.
After the series with the Yellow Jackets, the Dawgs return home to face Arizona in a three-game, Pac-10 series at Husky Ballpark April 23-25.
