Wow was that awesome or what. A victory that gives the Mets a 2 game winning streak!! We are on the way! Well ok a little much but hey Parnell was great tonight.
He used his breaking pitches to keep hitters off balance. Once he got past the first hitter he seem to settle in. He gave up no runs over 6 innings and struck out 7 as the Mets cruised to a victory 3-0.
Angel Pagan back in centerfield hit a lead off homer in the first inning for the Metsies. That was the first time all year the Mets had a lead off homer.
Parnell was throwing strikes all night. He struck out 4 of the last 5 batters he faced.
Brian Stokes gave up the only walk by Mets pitching in his 2 innings of work and K ROD pitched a 1 2 3 ninth to earn the save.
Frenchie had a double to score Castillo but the only run needed was Pagan homer.
Nice quick game and the Mets 10th shutout of the season.
