Pedro Martinez pitched six sharp innings in a Class A start Wednesday night, staying on track to return to the Mets' rotation next week in San Francisco, as reported by the Associated Press. ?I am really excited,? Martinez said. ?I would love to be there. I know the team really needs a little bit of a pat on the back, and I hope my presence will make a difference for them.? Pitching for St. Lucie in the Florida State League, Martinez gave up two runs and four hits. He threw 82 pitches, striking out six and walking none.
