[R] generating LaTeX tables from Match output

Dear R users,
I am using the Match function to generate nearest neighbor matching
estimators. On that front I am ok, but where I am having problems is
getting my output into nice LaTeX tables.
Here is some basic code imitating the estimation I'm doing. No problem there.
library(Matching)
#make up some data
X1 <- matrix(rnorm(1000*5), ncol=5)
Y1 <- as.vector(rnorm(1000))
Tr1 <- c(rep(1,500),rep(0,500))
#estimate nearest neighbor, 1-1 matching, ATT
a <- Match(Y=Y1, X=X1, Tr=Tr1, M=1)
summary(a)
#make up some more data
X2 <- matrix(rnorm(1000*5), ncol=5)
Y2 <- as.vector(rnorm(1000))
Tr2 <- c(rep(1,500),rep(0,500))
b <- Match(Y=Y2, X=X2, Tr=Tr2, M=1)
summary(b)
I have tried the xtable and latex functions but have not been able to
get what I wanted. One thing you should know if you are unfamiliar
with Match is that it only generates *one* estimator. What I want to
do is take the coefficient a (along with its SE) and the coefficient
in b (along with its SE) and put them into a nice table. Once I get
that accomplished, I'll worry about titles, etc. Eventually, though,
I will want to put the results from many (say, 10) estimations in one
table. If anyone has some recommended code, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks,
Brian
