Area Sports Briefs: Kannapolis Legion rolls

From staff & wire reports
CHICAGO— East Rowan grad Bobby Parnell is now entrenched as the New York Mets closer while Frank Francisco is on the 15-day disabled list and manager Terry Collins is confident he can get the job done.
Parnell has struggled in the closer’s role in the past, converting only six of 12 save opportunities last season. He has seven career saves in 22 chances.
Collins said Parnell’s “confidence is much better,” earning him the nod. Parnell is 1-1 with 15 holds and a 3.19 ERA in 36 appearances this season. He has 31 strikeouts in 31 innings pitched.
Kannapolis Legion rolls
Wes Miller had four hits and Ryan Keziah pitched six strong innings as the Kannapolis American Legion team whipped the Mooresville Legends 9-2 on Monday.
Evan Holub drove in two runs for second-place Kannapolis. Miller, Corey Seager, Jordan Goodman and Austin Mace knocked in one each.
Luke Pepper and Jarrin Hogue finished up on the mound for Kannapolis (12-4, 11-4).
Hogue’s double was Kannapolis’ only extra-base hit.
Andrew Meadows had two hits for the fourth-place Legends (10-7, 9-7).
