Pedro Martinez Perfect Game Box Score

Pedro Martinez became the second major league pitcher to take a perfect game into extra innings and the first to throw nine hitless innings at Jack Murphy Stadium. Martinez, who is a throw-back pitcher to an era long gone, hurled this amazing game yet only earned a simple win upon its completion due to a tench inning Bip Roberts line drive double down the right-field line.

"You just don't expect a guy weighing ninety-seven pounds to throw ninety-nine miles an hour. He's just very aggressive. I never really watched Bob Gibson pitch, but I get the feeling he's like a Gibson. If he has to throw one under your chin, he'll do it". - Larry Walker

Pedro Martinez "Near" Perfect Game Box Score



Pedro Martinez had a perfect game when he entered the tenth frame, but he gave up a lead-off double to Bip Roberts . Martinez lost his bid for perfection, lost his "official" no-hitter, and was replaced on the mound by Mel Rojas courtesy of his manager ( Felipe Alou ).

Did you know that Pedro Martinez threw just ninety-six pitches during this game and sixty-seven of them were strikes?

Only forty-one days later, Pedro Martinez's brother Ramon Martinez threw a no-hitter versus the Florida Marlins .
