Vote: What Was Your Favorite Pedro Martinez Moment as Member of Red Sox?Pedro Martinez just may be the best pitcher in the storied history of the Boston Red Sox.

In his seven seasons in Boston, Pedro made history, helped turn around a franchise and was part of the group that broke the curse in 2004. Along the way, he created a lot of memories.

The first that comes to many fans' minds is his relief performance in the 1999 American League Division Series against Cleveland. He entered Game 5 in the fourth inning, and all he did was six no-hit innings to lead the Red Sox to the series win.

Also that season, Martinez wowed the whole baseball world during the All-Star Game at Fenway Park. He dominated the National League's best hitters en route to winning the MVP.

The year 1999 was clearly a good one, as he pitched an unforgettable one-hitter at Yankee Stadium in September of that year. He struck out 17 Yankees in the process.

The next season, Pedro carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning in Tampa but lost it to John Flaherty. That game was also memorable for the brawl that started when Martinez hit Gerald Williams to start the game.

Pedro's final Red Sox memory was definitely his most significant, as he pitched seven shutout innings against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3 of the 2004 World Series.
