ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Pedro Martinez has left his rehab start after allowing five runs - four earned - and three hits in five innings for the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Philadelphia Phillies' top minor league affiliate.

Using a fastball that reached 93 mph on the stadium radar gun and an effective changeup, Martinez breezed through four innings Friday night against the Columbus Clippers, allowing only one run. He then gave up four more in a 35-pitch fifth.

Martinez threw 84 pitches total, striking out four and walking three, in what could be his final rehab start before joining the defending World Series champion Phillies. Clippers center fielder Michael Brantley smacked Martinez's second pitch over the right-field wall.
