New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh, 15 September 2006

Pedro Martinez (9-5, 3.84) vs. Paul Maholm (7-10, 4.90).

This probably isn't the year Mets fans were hoping for from Martinez - he's spent two months on the DL and has been good but hardly great when healthy. The strikeouts are still there, but he's allowed an alarming number of homers - 17 in 122 innings. This start marks his return to the rotation after missing a month with a "strained calf." (It must have been one heck of a strain.)
