Pedro Eliminates the Mets

Pedro Martinez pitched 8 masterful innings, beating his former team 1-0. The New York Mets are now eliminated from playoff contention. Pedro's 130 pitches were the most he has thrown since he was 29 years old. How sweet it must be, sticking it to the team that had zero interest in bringing him back. Dirty Wudders also had it wrong.

Martinez (5-0) tossed six-hit ball, struck out seven batters in eight shutout innings. He retired 10 straight at one point and the Phillies are now 7-0 when he starts. Ryan Madson tossed a scoreless ninth for his eighth save. Jimmy Rollins led off the game with a walk and scored on chase Utley's RBI single, for the only run of the game. The Phillied only had 3 hits on the night.
