Final Score: Cubs 6, Mets 3 — Cold as ice and willing to sacrifice...bunt

Jim McIsaac

Shaun Marcum's rough second inning hurt the Mets, as they fell to the Cubs on Friday evening.

Shaun Marcum didn't seem to have it early on and outside of Daniel Murphy and David Wright, the Mets' offense continued to not have it at all, as they fell to the Cubs 6-3 on Friday evening. Marcum allowed a solo home run in the first inning to Nate Schierholtz but the big blow came in the second, when the Cubs tallied four runs, three of them courtesy of a David DeJesus bases-clearing triple.

Marcum would manage to settle down, going 5.2 innings and allowing just one more run (six in total), but the Mets' hitters not named Wright or Murphy managed just four measly hits. Murphy had a pair of run-scoring hits and Wright was 3-for-3, though a 7th inning baserunning blunder essentially ended what could've been a bigger rally after the Mets had put two runs on the board in the inning.
