Mets Morning News: Mets perfect season is over, Marcum is day to day

USA TODAY Sports

New York Mets related news and links for April 5, 2013

So much for the dream of going 162-0 in 2013. Despite the best efforts of Dillon Gee, the Mets lost their first game of the season yesterday by a 2-1 score. Gee tossed 6.1 innings of 3-hit ball, and John Buck hit the home run that plated the Mets' lone run. Justin Turner also went 3-for-4 on Thursday. The full box score can be found here.

Shaun Marcum will definitely be missing his first start of the season, as he's been diagnosed with nerve inflammation. Marcum is currently listed as day to day, but will be heading back to Florida to recover. There is no word on how many starts that he might miss.

Up next for the Metsies will be the Florida Miami Marlins. Tonight's pitching matchup will feature Josh Johnson Mark Buehrle Alex Sanabia taking on R.A. Dickey Johan Santana Shaun Marcum Jeremy Hefner.
