On June 4, 1990 , Ramon Martinez struck out eighteen Atlanta Braves hitters in Dodger Stadium tying the team-record for strikeouts in a game (originally set by a lefty). Not one right-handed pitcher in Dodgers ' history has ever struck out as many batters in game - ever! The Braves who "helped" Ramon were Jeff Blauser (SS / 3 SO), David Justice (1B / 3 SO), Jim Presley (3B / 3 SO), Oddibe McDowell (CF / 3 SO), Dale Murphy (RF / 2 SO), Ron Gant (LF / 2 SO), Tom Glavine (P / 1 SO), and Jeff Treadway (2B / 1 SO).

Ramon Martinez tied the team record set originally by lefty Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax who struck out eighteen batters on August 31, 1959 . On April 24, 1962 , the record was tied, by another lefty, Sandy Koufax did it again!

Ramon Martinez, after the game, said, "Tonight was the best feeling I've ever had in a game. It feels great to be in the record book with a star like Sandy Koufax . I didn't know I was one strikeout away from the National League record in the ninth inning, but I felt good and I'm glad I got the shutout, 18 strikeouts and the complete game."

The opposing manager, Russ Nixon , summed it up differently saying, "I know what kind of stuff Sandy Koufax had, and when you tie his record you have to pitch a great game. I'll tell you one that: that son-of-a-bitch can really throw."

On June 3, 1995 , Pedro Martinez did not allow a hit until the 10th inning. The younger brother of the 3-time Cy Young Award winner, Ramon Martinez, bested his brother and came within one walk of a perfect game :

Ramon Martinez No-Hitter ( July 14, 1995 )

There was some cause for concern when Ramon Martinez took the mound on Friday, July 14 for the NL West's first-place Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. The 27-year-old hurler was not having a particularly good year. At one point, he had give up 20 runs in three starts. In his previous outing at Dodger Stadium, he had been shelled for 10 runs and been booed by fans as he left the field.

Martinez took an 8-6 record into the game against the Florida Marlins , who stood in last place in the National League East. He was opposed by John Burkett .

With a crowd of 30,988 watching, Martinez came within one batter of pitcher a perfect game . Ironically, Ramon's younger brother, Pedro , had nearly pitched a perfect game earlier in the season for the Montreal Expos , retiring 27 San Diego Padres batters in a row before yielding a leadoff double in the 10th inning.

Throwing just 114 pitches and relying heavily on a 92-mile-per-hour fastball, Ramon struck out eight Marlins while facing just one batter over the minimum. It was the first no-hitter to be pitched against the Marlins .

Martinez began the game by retiring Quilvio Veras on a ground out to second. He then struck out Chuckie Carr and got Jeff Conine to bounce out to short.

The Marlins didn't get a ball out of the infield until Veras lifted a fly to center leading off the fourth. Dodger outfielders would make only five more putouts for the rest of the game.

Martinez had a couple of close calls in the sixth. Delino DeShields bobbled Kurt Abbott's grounder at second before throwing him out at first. On the next batter, Charlie Johnson grounded to short where Jose Offerman fielded the ball and was saved on a low throw to first on Eric Karros ' short-hop pickup.

The Dodgers ' pitcher retired the Marlins in order in every inning until he walked Tommy Gregg on a 3-2 pitch with two outs in the eighth inning. Gregg was stranded on first as Martinez struck out Abbott .

In the ninth, Martinez struck out Johnson on a 1-2 pitch, then retired Jerry Browne , a late-inning replacement, on a one-hopper to DeShields . The final out came when Veras lofted a fly ball to Roberto Kelly in left.

The Dodgers gave Martinez a big cushion offensively. Offerman and Mike Piazza singled home runs in the third, and Todd Hollandsworth singled in a run in the fourth. Four more runs crossed in the sixth on the third hit of the game by Hollandsworth and a three-run triple by Offerman .

The game had a settling effect on Martinez. He went on to win nine of his final 10 decisions, finishing the season with a 17-7 record.

Ramon Martinez led the National League in bases on balls allowed twice in his career (1993 & 1995), both instances while pitching with Los Angeles , joining another Dodger lefty, Fernando Valenzuela (1984 & 1987) - the two hurlers are the only two Los Angeles Dodgers to lead the league in walks twice.
