7,617: Parnell pitches Mets to victory

Wow, two straight

Bobby Parnell threw seven solid strong innings of shutout ball and the Mets rallied for five runs in the eighth inning Friday night for a 6-2 win over the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field.

Parnell lost his no-hitter in the second inning when Jeff Baker drove an up-the-middle liner right through the wickets, advancing our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,617 New York Mets games without a no-no. It was one of only five hits that Parnell yielded in his start.

Cory Sullivan had a 2-for-2 night with a second-inning solo blast into the right-field Pepsi Porch. He also contributed in the field, stealing a hit from Kosuke Fukudome in the fifth with a diving catch on a slice to left.
