Sports briefs: SFSU edges W. Washington

Sophomore Dylan Glass scored twice — both times being set up by Wes Whitt — as the San Francisco State men’s soccer team beat Western Washington 2-1 at Bellingham, Wash. The Gators (2-2) trailed when Western Washington scored in the 23rd minute, but Whitt’s corner kick set up Glass’ first goal at 68:12 and Glass snapped the tie at 71:47.

Pedro wins in return

This wasn’t the old Pedro Martinez we have come to know and love. This was just an old Pedro Martinez. Still, in his first appearance of the season following Oct. 5 rotator cuff surgery, the right-hander showed he still knows how to pitch. Martinez notched his 3,000th career strikeout in leading the New York Mets to a 10-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. “Indescribable,” the three-time Cy Young winner said. “So far, so good. It was good enough. I did what I was supposed to do. I got 75 pitches in [76, actually]. I gave my team an opportunity. I felt I settled down after the first inning and got everything in control again.” Martinez whiffed pitcher Aaron Harang in the second inning to become just the 15th player in history to record 3,000 career strikeouts.
