Marcum gets 1st win, Mets top White Sox 3-0

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Shaun Marcum pitched eight shutout innings for his first win of the season, and Eric Young Jr. had three hits and drove in a run to lead the New York Mets to a 3-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.
 
   Marcum (1-9) won for the first time since Oct. 1, 2012, while pitching for Milwaukee. He avoided becoming the first to start a season 0-10 since St. Louis' Anthony Reyes did it in 2007.
 
   Marcum had lost his previous four starts and posted a 9.58 ERA in his last two outings. The veteran right-hander faced just three batters over the minimum. He scattered four hits and pitched around two walks and was helped by good defense behind him.
 
   Bobby Parnell pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save in 16 chances.
 
   Chicago's John Danks (1-5) allowed three runs -- one earned -- on seven hits. He struck out seven and didn't walk anyone in 7 1-3 innings.
 
   Alexei Ramirez had two of Chicago's four hits.
 
   Danks retired the first nine batters until giving up a leadoff single to Young in the fourth inning. Danks had retired 30 consecutive batters at home, dating to June 8 in a win against Oakland.
 
   In the fifth, Josh Satin led off with a single, and one out later moved to third on Andrew Brown's single with Brown taking second on the throw. Juan Lagares followed with a hard grounder that got past Ramirez's glove at shortstop for an error that scored two runs.
 
   With two outs, Young added an RBI single to give the Mets a 3-0 lead.
 
   Marcum benefited from a nice defensive inning in the fifth. Second baseman Daniel Murphy took a barehanded flip to turn a double play, and shortstop Omar Quintanilla threw out Flowers from the outfield grass to end the inning.
 
   In the ninth, Quintanilla made a sliding a stop on Ramirez's ball, turned around and made a long, strong throw for the second out of the inning.
 
   NOTES: Before the game, Mets starter Jeremy Hefner went ahead of the team to Colorado, where he will pitch a makeup game on Thursday. Matt Harvey and Dillon Gee flew back to New York to prepare for starts against Washington on Friday and Saturday respectively. Mets manager Terry Collins said the rest of the team isn't expected to get back to New York until 4:00 Friday morning.
