Parnell was fabulous in his second Major League start on Friday, limiting the Giants to three hits in six innings. He struck out a career-high seven while walking none in the Mets’ 3-0 win. Parnell has made six relief appearances against the Braves this season, allowing two unearned runs on five hits in four innings. Two of those hits, including a double, belong to Martin Prado. The Braves as the whole are 5-for-15 off Parnell this season.

Jurrjens’ lone mistake against the Phillies on Friday night resulted in a Chase Utley two-run homer that accounted for the only runs he surrendered over seven innings. The 22-year-old right-hander proved to be more impressive than he’d been while allowing the Dodgers four earned runs in both of his previous two starts. Jurrjens tossed six scoreless innings against the Mets on July 17, and during his only previous start at Citi Field — on May 12 — he allowed two runs over 7 2/3 innings. He is 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA in five career starts against the Mets.
