LaTroy Hawkins gets first save in Bobby Parnell’s absence

August 6, 2013

New York Mets – With Bobby Parnell on the DL, the first Mets save went to LaTroy Hawkins, who pitched a scoreless 9th.  David Aardsma got a save opp over the weekend, but blew it, and gave up the go-ahead run in extra innings the following night, so given Hawkins’s success tonight, the ageless righty is the best bet for the bulk of saves in the Mets bullpen.  Hierarchy change: LaTroy Hawkins to Closer, David Aardsma to Set-up.
