On September 13, 2009 — Philadelphia sweeps New York, 5 – 4 and 1 – 0, in a day/night doubleheader that draws almost 90,000 fans to Citizens Bank Park. In the nitecap, Pedro Martinez reminds the crowd of his glory days by shutting out the Mets over 8 innings before Ryan Madson comes in to finish the game. The only blight on Philly’s day are the continuing struggles of closer Brad Lidge, who gives up two runs in the 9th in saving the opening win.
