PEDRO IMPROVES TO 5-0
Pedro Martinez stunned the Mets as the Phillies swept a doubleheader from their NL East rivals. He pitched 8 shutout innings, scattering 6 hits, striking out 7, and throwing 130 pitches. He hasn't thrown that many pitches in a game since Game 1 of the 2003 ALDS against the Athletics.
In 7 starts for the Phillies, Pedro is 5-0 with a 2.87 ERA, 34 strikeouts, and a 1.09 WHIP. He's only walked 6 batters.
