Shaun Marcum yielded three runs in four innings Saturday in his season debut against the Phillies.
Marcum was removed after four innings because the Mets had a chance to score when his spot in the lineup came up, but he probably wasn't long for the game, anyway. Showing some rust, he gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. He also uncorked a wild pitch which led to a run scoring. We're expecting better results in future outings, though his matchup against the Braves next week could be a tough one.
