Major Leagues

Parnell earned a spot in the Mets bullpen to start the 2009 season. He got his first win May 8, 2009 against the Pirates; he pitched a scoreless eighth inning. On August 5, he got his first major league hit in his first career at-bat, as he pitched three innings for the save. After Mets pitcher Jon Niese suffered a season-ending injury in the same game, Parnell was tabbed to replace Niese in the rotation. [3]He made his first Major League start on August 8 against the San Diego Padres. He earned his first Major League win as a starter in his second start on August 14, pitching six innings, giving up only three hits, and striking out seven. Parnell was terrific on September 4, shutting down the Cubs that battered him in his last start. Parnell pitched a career-high seven innings, shutting out the Cubs on five hits while striking out seven.[1]
