Pedro Martinez threw eight shutout innings against his old team Sunday to lead the Phillies to a 1-0 win over the New York Mets in Game 2 of a day-night doubleheader.
Mets’ starter Tim Redding threw six innings of three-hit ball, giving up the game’s lone run in the first inning.
After Jimmy Rollins drew a leadoff walk and Shane Victorino singled to advance Rollins to second (and advance our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,626 New York Mets games without a no-hitter), Chase Utley singled home Rollins to give the Phillies a 1-0 lead.
And after Pedro Feliz led off the second inning with a double, Redding retired the next 14 batters.
Martinez, meanwhile, scattered just six hits and a pair of walks to improve to 5-0 since joining the Phillies.
