The best matchup of the weekend
Boston at New York (165-112)

Pedro Martinez pitches for Boston tonight on the heels of a most untypical outing against New York last Saturday. Pedro does not have many bad showings, so I thought it might be interesting to see how he fares in the start after these rare lapses. For the purposes of this examination, we'll consider a poor outing to be one in which he allowed one less run or more than the number of innings he pitched.
