Plax 4 Prez Posted April 17, 2006 Share Posted April 17, 2006 Mets look for 10th win behind Martinez Atlanta (6-7) at NY Mets (9-2) 7:10 pm EDT FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) - Trying to become the first team in the major leagues to win 10 games, the New York Mets send Pedro Martinez to the mound Monday as they open a three-game series against National League East Division rival the Atlanta Braves. Martinez (2-0, 3.46 ERA) was sharp in his last outing, yielding just one run and one hit - a solo homer to Jose Vidro - in seven innings as the Mets defeated Washington on Wednesday, 3-1. New York posted a 9-3 triumph in its rubber game against Milwaukee on Sunday to improve to a major league-best 9-2. Carlos Delgado and Xavier Nady each homered and drove in three runs for the Mets, who are off to their best start in franchise history. Atlanta will counter with Jorge Sosa (0-2, 11.37), who has yet to last more than four innings this season. Sosa has thrown a total of 6 1/3 frames in two starts, yielding 10 runs and 11 hits. The Braves had won the first two games against San Diego over the weekend before losing Sunday's finale, 4-3. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
