On a Friday night in Yankee Stadium, Pedro Martinez allowed just one hit, a line-drive home run by Chili Davis, and struck out 17, the most Yankees ever to strike out in a game, including 12 of the last 15 and the last five in succession. Yankee fans were on their feet roaring for him at the end. "I've never seen anyone pitch like he did tonight," said Martinez's older brother, Ramon, author of a no-hitter and 18-strikeout game. "Nothing would surprise me. I keep telling him he might break the strikeout record, he might pitch a perfect game, a no-hitter. Anything, at any time.''
