New York Met left-hander Shawn Estes probably will be fined for throwing a pitch behind New York Yankee ace Roger Clemens, major league disciplinarian Bob Watson said Tuesday. Watson said Estes' pitch Saturday violated rule 8.02 (d), which states that the pitcher shall not intentionally throw at the batter. He said he has made a decision about the fine but will not announce the amount. "We need to inform some people of what we're going to do. It's going to take awhile," Watson said.

SHAWN ESTES Baseball Shawn Estes, a 6-foot-2 left-handed pitcher from Douglas High in Minden, Nev., is perhaps the most celebrated player on the West team. Estes, 18, was the Seattle Mariners' first-round pick in the June amateur draft and the 11th player chosen overall. In his senior year, Estes pitched a no-hitter and had an 8-2 record with an 0.80 earned-run average. He was named the Nevada player of the year.

The only negative for Kirk Rueter about winning his 100th career game was that he had to defeat his best friend to do it. Rueter outpitched former teammate Shawn Estes to beat the Mets for the first time in 13 tries and the San Francisco Giants beat New York, 8-2, Wednesday night. "I wasn't looking forward to it," Rueter said. "He was my best friend for the last five years. We've been through a lot together. It's not easy to pitch against your best friend."

Shawn Estes went back to last year's pitching form, and once he did, it didn't take long to get similar results. Rediscovering the mechanics that made him a 19-game winner last season, Estes got his first victory Tuesday as the San Francisco Giants beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-1. Estes (1-4) retired 15 consecutive batters after giving up Tony Womack's single to start the game. He gave up two hits in 6 1/3 innings with six strikeouts as San Francisco won its season-high fourth consecutive game.

Pitcher Shawn Estes was never known for his steals as a San Francisco Giant, but he now may be. Estes allegedly took a joy ride on a $600 21-speed bicycle he saw parked outside a Los Gatos restaurant three weeks ago, possibly failing to notice the word "police" stenciled on its frame. When bike patrol officers Randall Bishop and Michael Wharton came out of the restaurant and spotted Estes, 23, he returned the bike.

Steve Finley, who hit three home runs the day before, singled in a third-inning run Tuesday, but that was about all San Diego could do against Shawn Estes. Then again, nobody is doing much against Estes these days. Estes (10-2) gave up seven hits in eight innings before turning things over to Rod Beck, who picked up his 25th save and finished San Francisco's 4-1 victory over the Padres, only the Giants' third in their last 15 games against San Diego.

Before the season, Shawn Estes set a personal goal of 15 victories. He reached that mark 6 1/2 weeks early. Estes got his 15th victory and Bill Mueller hit a three-run homer Thursday as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Chicago Cubs, 7-3, at San Francisco. Estes (15-4) gave up two runs and five hits in 7 1/3 innings, striking out 10. He retired 11 consecutive batters in the fourth through seventh innings. Estes is 11-2 in his last 18 starts. "His curve ball was: 'Oh my God!'

Shawn Estes was getting ready to bat in the fifth inning and the scoreboard at Shea Stadium flashed that he had pitched four no-hitters in high school. "You're not supposed to do that. Isn't that a jinx?" Estes said. He nearly came up with the first no-hitter in the history of the New York Mets and a perfect game too.

Dusty Baker, amid the glow of spring, was convinced that his San Francisco Giants had five starting pitchers capable of winning 15 games each. The Giants may fall short of that objective, which is not to say Baker was entirely wrong.

San Francisco pitcher Shawn Estes was far more pleased with the final score than his performance. Estes (16-4) gave up five runs on seven hits in six-plus innings, winning his fourth consecutive decision as the Giants defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-5, Tuesday night to remain two games ahead of the Dodgers in the National League West. "I thought I had good stuff and I felt very good physically," said Estes, 3-0 against the Phillies this season. "I didn't concentrate very well.

Shawn Estes gave up one hit, a first-inning single, in 8 2/3 innings, and tied a career high with 11 strikeouts as the Giants defeated the Rockies, 4-0, Friday night. Estes (12-2) gave up only a line-drive single to right by Quinton McCracken with one out in the first. McCracken was caught stealing, and Estes retired the next 22 batters before walking Kirt Manwaring to lead off the ninth.
