Mets triumph in plucky 13th
Pedro Martinez matched Brandon Webb zero for zero last night. In the end, neither ace had anything to show for his dominating effort - a fate Martinez is suffering with regularity.
At least Martinez could take comfort in this: Endy Chavez's 13th-inning single to right-center on a sinker from Jason Grimsley scored Jose Valentin from third base and lifted the Mets to a 1-0 win against the NL West-leading Diamondbacks last night at Shea.
The Mets (32-20) won the rubber game of the three-game set and now hold a 4 1/2-game lead in the NL East over second-place Atlanta, which leapfrogged Philadelphia.
