Starting Lineup Mike Baxter RF Ruben Tejada SS Daniel Murphy 2B David Wright 3B Lucas Duda LF John Buck C Ike Davis 1B Jordany Valdespin CF Shaun Marcum RHP Game Notes Josh Edgin, 26, was demoted to Double-A Binghamton to make room for today’s starter Shaun marcum.

Mets Demote Edgin To Double-A Binghamton To Make Room For Marcum
