Pedro Martinez = Automatic

Man is it nice having a starting pitcher like Pedro Martinez. Yeah, he'll drop a game every now and then, but those are the exceptions, not the rule. He improved to 6-1 and struck out nine through either innings. He only gave up five hits and he did it all while throwing just 101 pitches.

Carlos Beltran hit his seventh homer of the season and Kaz Matsui drove in two runs. Tomorrow's matchup is with two struggling pitchers. Hopefully Tom Glavine will put it together and the Mets can hit Noah Lowry, who looks more and more like 2004 was a fluke season for him. He is coming off two of his best starts of the season, so hopefully we don't catch him while he's on an upswing.

The Marlins won, and the Braves look like they're on their way to winning.
