PEDRO IS GOD
Pedro Martinez outdueled Cy Young winner Tim Linecum for his 3rd win of the season. He went 7 innings, scattered 5 hits, allowed only 1 run, and struck out 9.
As a Phillie, he's made 5 starts (oddly enough he's allowed 3 leadoff homeruns in those 5 starts), gone 3-0, with a 3.52 ERA and a very tidy 1.09 WHIP. I wish the Red Sox had him, and not just because he can turn water into wine. But he can also pitch.
