PEDRO IS WELL….. PEDRO AS HE THROWS A NO-HITTER AGAINST BUFFALO

For Immediate Release
August 10, 2000

ESPN NEWS (Bristol) – Pedro Martinez continued a masterful season on Thursday August 10th, 2000.    Martinez was one away from perfect.   One walk, which was on a very close pitch, and Martinez starred down the ump when it happened.   Martinez did throw a No-Hitter, and was as usual – dominating.  He only went to 3 balls on 2 hitters during the game, and without the walk, he would have been Perfect.   Pedro was backed by a 15 hit, 10 run attack from the Severn Express hitters, including 3 home runs.  Miguel Tejada and Manny Ramirez were two of the players who hit homers, and each drove in 4 runs.  Martinez stuck out seven, and was matched through seven innings by Buffalo’s David Cone’s 7 K’s in 7.1 innings.    Martinez lowered his American League ERA to a astonishing 2.32    Martinez was his usually bubbly self in the press conference after the game.  He said “All I do is go out and pitch the ball.   I just do what comes natural, and I try to work at a quick pace, especially with the No-Hitter on the line.   I didn’t even know it, until the 6th, when guys started to stay away from me on the bench.  At that point, I though I was sweating to much, and stinking, then I looked up, and saw the scoreboard, and it hit me.   I wasn’t nervous after that, just excited, I hope that I can do it again next start”.
