Mets SP Jonathon Niese struggles in Tuesday's loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/15) Mets pitcher Jonathon Niese got through the first two innings unscathed, but the third was his undoing during Tuesday's 14-8 loss to the Phillies.
Niese allowed five runs in the third en route to six runs on seven hits over five innings. He also struck out two and walked two. One of his mistakes was giving up a three-run home run to Darin Ruf in the third.
Niese had not lost his last eight outings prior to Tuesday's defeat.
Mets SP Jonathon Niese gives up five, gets no-decision Thursday

|(8/27/15) Mets starter Jonathon Niese had a rough outing on Thursday, but he was bailed out by his offense in the 9-5 win over the Phillies. Niese endured one bad inning, as all five runs the Phillies would score came in the third inning.
Niese, who got the no-decision on Thursday, allowed five runs on five hits over six innings. He walked five and struck out five, throwing 57 of his 103 pitches for strikes.
Niese has now struggled in back-to-back starts, but the Mets' explosive offense has gotten him off the hook in both outings.
Overall, in five August starts, Niese went 3-0 with a 5.18 ERA.
Mets SP Jonathon Niese wins despite allowing seven runs
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/22/15) Mets starter Jonathon Niese earned himself a Coors Field win on Saturday. The left-hander allowed seven runs on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings, but still came out on top against the Rockies, as the Mets won by the score of 14-9.
Niese (8-9, 3.80 ERA) was given a 3-0 lead in the second inning, but he gave that right back in the bottom half. The Mets went on to put up an eight-spot in the top of the third, with another three-run inning in the fifth. But Niese got knocked around as well, giving up four runs in the sixth.
This was a forgettable outing for Niese, who had posted quality starts in 12 of his last 13 outings coming in.

Mets SP Jonathon Niese finally gets run support in earning win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/10/15) Mets starter Jonathon Niese was waiting throughout his outing Monday night for his offense to catch up with his pitching. It finally did - and the result was his second consecutive victory.
Niese allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings with no walks and five strikeouts. But the Rockies held the lead until the bottom of the seventh, when New York tallied three. The bullpen did the rest.
The left-hander gave up only a two-run homer to sizzling Carlos Gonzalez in the fourth. He surrendered two more hits in that inning before settling down to retire the last 11 batters he faced.
Niese has yielded just four runs over 20 innings in his last three starts to shrink his ERA to 3.46.
|2014 summary: Jonathon Niese bounced back from a 2013 season that was dampened by a shoulder injury, and he provided the Mets with 187 2/3 innings over 30 starts, even though he had to contend with a shoulder strain. The seven-year veteran had to make the best of reduced velocity, and he coped by throwing strikes and pitching to contact. The approach was largely successful; Niese cut back on his walks, improved his efficiency and finished with a 3.40 ERA. A lack of run support (3.5 runs per nine innings) left Niese with a 9-11 record.|
Playing time status: Though he is the lone lefty in the Mets' rotation, Niese could be a candidate to be moved this offseason. He has never made more than 30 starts in a season, though, so he probably won't provide a high innings total for the Mets or another team.
2015 outlook: Though Niese did a good job of preventing runs last season, two straight years of shoulder problems along with last season's velocity drop raise plenty of questions for 2015. Standard mixed league owners should look elsewhere for late-round pitching bargains because Niese is best saved for deeper formats.
