However, after giving up another run via an Aaron Hill RBI single in the 2nd, Marcum settled in and put up a few zeroes before departing after the sixth. The Mets’ offense continued to struggle early in this matchup. They were stifled by Arizona’s Wade Miley, and went scoreless until David Wright drove in Eric Young with a 7th-inning single to make it 3-1. A scary play in the 8th led to another run for the Mets. Gerardo Parra dived for an Omar Quintanilla shot into the gap, but was unable to hold onto the ball. Parra hit the ground hard and was on the field for several minutes before being taken out of the game. Quintanilla reached third on the play and scored on Young’s 2-out double. However, Daniel Murphy stranded Young at thi...

MLB Game Picks - Monday: July 1, 2013

Happy Canada Day to my friends north of the border. And Happy Birthday to my first wife, a lovely lady and mother to my children. June went by in a blur. But I guess that is what all older people say. I am excited about a new month though because May and June were so ordinary and blah when it came to picking games. Both months just scraped by a bit over .500 and the season'...
