Lost in the Mets’ dramatic comeback win Friday, was another subpar performance from starter Shaun Marcum.

The right-hander, six days after pitching four innings in his Mets debut, could not complete five innings again. Marcum (0-2, 7.20 ERA) was pulled with the bases loaded and one out in the fifth inning. After two perfect innings, he labored. He walked three, allowed six hits, and was ultimately credited for three runs.

“I feel good. I just have got to quit walking people,” said Marcum, who also made an emergency relief appearance and was the loser in the Mets’ 15-inning loss to the Marlins on Tueday. “When I'm getting ahead, I've got to put the guys away.”

The short outing forced Terry Collins to figure out how to record at least 14 outs with a Mets bullpen that had already been overused through the first month of the season. They ended up needing to get 17 outs in the Mets' 10-inning win.
