MLB: Parnell gets second win

Staff reportRight place, right time.
New York Mets reliever Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) didn’t have a very good outing in San Francisco Thursday night, but he emerged with his second win of the season.
Parnell (2-0, 2.20 ERA) entered the game to pitch the bottom of the eighth with the Mets holding a 4-2 lead.
He faced seven batters in the eighth and was forced to throw 25 pitches.
He allowed two runs on a walk, a sacrifice bunt and three singles (two didn’t leave the infield). He struck out Rich Aurilia and retired Pablo Sandoval, one of the Giants’ hottest hitters, on a groundball to third base to end the inning and keep the game 4-4.
David Wright’s RBI single in the ninth put the Mets up 5-4, and they tacked on two more insurance runs to put Parnell in position to be the winning pitcher.
Francisco Rodriguez saved Parnell’s second win by retiring the Giants in the bottom of the ninth.
The Mets played without Carlos Delgado and Jose Reyes, two of their offensive leaders.
