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.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
