5. Pedro Martinez – July 13, 1999
Pedro helped set up the American League’s 4-1 victory from the first pitch. He only pitched the first two innings, but they were a dominant two innings.
He struck out Barry Larkin, Larry Walker, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire and Jeff Bagwell. Pedro was in the zone so much so on this night, he solidified his standing as one of the best pitchers and arguably the best in our time. And that is a time that features Randy Johnson, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Roger Clemens.
