Martinez and Hudson faced each other 4 more times in their careers, and the results were delightfully mercurial:

4/15/2000 | Hudson 1.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 4 BB, 1 K | Martinez 7.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 9 K

8/11/2003 | Hudson 9.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K | Martinez 5.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 7 K

9/8/2004 | Hudson 3.0 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 5 BB, 3 K | Martinez 6.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K

9/27/2006 | Hudson 6.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 2 K | Martinez 2.2 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 2 BB, 1 K (As members of ATL and NYM)

conclusion: baseball is fun, possibly hard to predict

Cistulli, I’m late to the party but while I sliced two onions for dinner this evening, listened to this episode and thoroughly enjoyed it.
