Not tonight. Pedro Martinez had pitched so brilliantly for the Mets only to come up empty. He kept them in the game again tonight but the Dodgers blew it open in the six-run sixth. It happens. Nobody, expect for maybe Pedro himself, expected him to keep it up.
Martinez gave up seven runs in five innings. To gain a sense of how well he’s pitched this year, he gave up 22 runs in his previous 11 starts combined.
