Martinez threw an economical six innings Sunday, allowing Atlanta just two hits on 61 pitches and then turned a comfortable six-run lead over to the New York bullpen in what became an 8-1 victory for the Mets over the Braves.
``I had an easy day and I deserved it, didn't I?'' Martinez said. ``It was an easy day at the office.''
With Martinez coasting, manager Willie Randolph shortened the ace right-hander's outing, lifting him after six and using three relievers to finish off the Braves.
``I just wanted to get the bullpen some work,'' he said. ``Even though he had a low pitch count, anytime I can take Pedro out leading 6-0, I'll do it and that's what I did.''
That was fine with Martinez (11-3).
``I agree with everything they do,'' he said. ``I trust them completely. They know what they're doing. I could use the rest for the future so I can be healthy for August and September, when they need me.''
