This was an unusually positive game for the Mets with a great start from Bobby Parnell. In his second big league start Parnell threw 86 pitches over 6 innings only giving up 3 hits and no walks to go along with 7 strikeouts. It was a big leap forward for Parnell in his transition to pitching in the rotation.
The Mets offense didn’t show up again tonight. They only managed 5 hits and 2 walks in the game. But Angel Pagan led the game off with a home run to left field, his third of the season.
