Pedro’s perfect 27: This day in no-no history

Pedro MartinezSince today’s Mets-Pirates game was postponed, we’ll do a “This day in no-no history installment.”

Fourteen years ago today (June 3, 1995) eventual Met Pedro Martínez, then a Montreal Expo, retired the first 27 San Diego Padres batters he faced, but would not be credited with a perfect game.

The Expos offense couldn’t score a run for their pitcher until the top of the 10th, and Martínez surrendered a leadoff double in the bottom of the 10th. Reliever Mel Rojas came in to retire the next three batters for a combined 10-inning one-hitter.
