Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Shaun Marcum threw eight shutout innings and
earned his first win of the 2013 season, as the New York Mets blanked the
Chicago White Sox, 3-0, in the second and final contest of a two-game set at
U.S. Cellular Field.
The 31-year-old Marcum (1-9), who signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the
Mets this offseason, allowed just four hits and two walks in his outing, and
avoided being the first Mets pitcher to start a season 0-10 since Anthony
Young in 1993.
Eric Young went 3-for-4 with an RBI. Juan Lagares also drove in one run in
Chicago starter John Danks (1-5) gave up all three runs -- one earned -- on
seven hits while striking out seven over 7 1/3 innings.
