PEDRO GETS ONE MORE CHANCE
Pedro Martinez, a.k.a. God's chosen vessel on Earth, the radiant one who shines his light on all of us, will get another chance to pitch on the biggest stage in baseball. The Phillies extended the World Series with their 8-6 win last night. Pedro will take the mound for them in Game 6.
It'll be cold in New York, mid 40's around game time. Pedro pitched decently in his Game 2 start, but wasn't able to go very deep into the game. The Phillies' offense was shut down by AJ Burnett.
Pedro will be up against Andy Pettitte, who'll be on 3 days rest. We just saw AJ Burnett on 3 days rest, and it wasn't too pretty. Maybe the 37 year old Pettitte will also struggle. Pedro will be going on full rest.
