Parnell again effective for Mets

Staff and wire reports
Mets reliever Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) had a scoreless appearance in New York’s 4-3 win over Washington on Friday night. He struck out two batters and allowed one hit in 2/3 of an inning.
Parnell took over for Johan Santana to start the seventh inning with New York leading 3-1. Alberto Gonzalez led off with a single and moved to second on a wild pitch. Parnell then struck out Josh Willingham and Anderson Hernandez. Pedro Feliciano replaced Parnell, whose ERA is now 2.08, and induced a groundout.

Mets manager Jerry Manuel isn’t ready to toss any of his starting pitchers ó just yet.
With his team coming home on a four-game losing streak, Manuel warned that changes might be coming if his starters don’t improve the next time through the rotation.
“It’s too early to jump off a bridge, I’ll say that,” Manuel said before Friday night’s 4-3 victory over Washington. “I’m at the bridge. So, if I’m at the bridge, I’ve got to take some folks with me. So that’s kind of how I feel about that. I’ve got to see a little better than what I’m seeing. I’m going to say, ‘Fellas, we’ve got to do some jumping here, you know? Get your life vest, whatever you’re going to take with you. We’ve got to do something.”‘
Johan Santana is 3-1 with a 0.70 ERA in four outings. Mike Pelfrey, Oliver Perez, John Maine, Livan Hernandez and recently released Nelson Figueroa combined to go 3-5 with a 7.32 ERA.
n
Arizona Diamondbacks ace Brandon Webb experienced a setback Friday in his attempt to recover from shoulder problems that have sidelined him since his opening-day start.
Webb’s scheduled bullpen session was canceled when the right-hander felt tightness in the shoulder while playing catch. It was supposed to be his second bullpen workout.
The plan had been for Webb to throw to hitters if Friday’s bullpen went well, then perhaps have him make a minor league start.
