Pedro Martinez had many memorable games with the Red Sox, including his final outing with the team when he dominated the hapless St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3 of the 2004 World Series. Five years earlier, Martinez solidified his place in Red Sox history by fanning five of the first six National League batters in the All-Star Game at Fenway Park.
Later that season, he injured his back pitching Game 1 of the ALDS against Cleveland. In Game 5, after not throwing for a week, he came in with the game tied 8-8 and threw six innings of no-hit relief. Boston moved on to the next round with a 12-8 victory. There were no “daddy” issues that night.
