"I'm excited about it," Parnell said after Wednesday's game. "But today's today and tomorrow's tomorrow."
Parnell pitched two perfect innings for the Mets in their 3-2 win and has now thrown four consecutive scoreless innings. This season he's thrown 13 pitches over 100 mph, which is fourth in the Majors.
"I know I'm throwing good, and I feel like I can let loose," Parnell said "You just try to ride the wave."
Manager Jerry Manuel said he liked what he saw from Parnell and said he could use him as a closer in future games.
"You have to see it on a consistent basis," Manuel said.
