Not even Albert Belle's return to the Baltimore Orioles' lineup could overshadow the pitching of Juan Guzman and an awesome power display by the Orioles in the first inning. Guzman pitched a six-hitter for his first shutout in nearly three years, cruising to a 5-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday after Brady Anderson, Mike Bordick and Will Clark homered in the opening inning.

For someone who says he doesn't like to pitch under pressure, Juan Guzman seems to thrive when the tension is highest. Guzman, who will start for the Blue Jays on Tuesday when the World Series shifts to Toronto's SkyDome, pitched the Blue Jays' AL East title-clinching victory over the Tigers and their pennant-clinching win over Oakland last Wednesday. Still, he grimaced and sighed at the thought of facing the Braves with the series tied, 1-1.

If Juan Guzman was distracted he certainly didn't show it. Guzman, expecting to be traded at any moment, pitched eight shutout innings Thursday as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Texas Rangers, 1-0, at Toronto. "I've been thinking that this was my last game," Guzman said. "I'm going to miss this place because can you imagine I've been here eight years, all my friends, plus this is one of the best organizations there is."

The double-A Knoxville Blue Jays lead the Chattanooga Lookouts in the bottom of the eighth inning, 6-3. The Blue Jays have called on a 22-year-old right-hander with a reputation common to young power pitchers: great stuff, terrible control. The first three he faces reach base--one gets a hit, two walk. With the bases loaded, he hits the next batter. Then he hits the showers.

It matters very little whether it's Shoeless Joe or Clueless Bo who comes stepping into the batter's box. What makes all the difference is whether your pitcher still has anything on the ball, as Juan Guzman of the Toronto Blue Jays surely must have been thinking from the edge of his dugout seat Sunday when a menacing Bo Jackson dug in against a relief pitcher intent on saving Guzman's game, Duane Ward. "Well, let me tell you that I wasn't watching the game," Guzman confessed.

Oakland Athletics' right-hander Ron Darling has few illusions about his abilities at this stage of his career, after nine seasons in the major leagues and elbow surgery two years ago. "You put Juan Guzman's name in the computer, it rings bells," Darling said of his pitching opponent Saturday in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series, "and you put my name in, it spits me out. But luckily, baseball is not played by a computer."

As much as Toronto needed this game, Juan Guzman needed it more. Coming off shoulder surgery and winless for almost a year, the 31-year-old right-hander had given up 10 runs for the first time in his seven-year career in his last start. But he was his old self Tuesday night, holding Kansas City to four hits through seven innings and striking out six in the Blue Jays' 5-1 victory at Kansas City, Mo. "I'm a lot better.

The Toronto Blue Jays wanted Jose Offerman, but the Dodgers insisted that they take Juan Guzman. Pat Gillick, Toronto's general manager, wasn't happy then, but he looks on the deal more favorably now. With Dave Stieb unable to pitch since May 22 because of a herniated disk, Guzman, 24, has been Toronto's savior.
