Jonathon Niese falls short in pitchers' duel


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/14/2014) Jonathon Niese didn't get any run support on Sunday against the Nationals, but he kept the Mets in the game with seven strong innings in a 3-0 loss. Niese kept pace with Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann for six innings, but Wilson Ramos broke a scoreless tie with a two-run homer in the seventh inning, which saddled the lefty with a loss.

The two earned runs were all that Niese allowed on six hits, and he struck out seven batters and walked none. His record fell to 8-11, though his ERA improved to 3.55. Niese's next start will come on Saturday at the Braves.

Jonathon Niese loses despite tossing quality start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Mets pitcher Jonathon Niese turned in a solid start Thursday against the Braves.

Niese allowed three runs on nine hits over 7 1/3 innings. He struck out five and walked one during the outing. Niese had a tough time against opposing pitcher Mike Minor throughout the start. Minor helped his own cause in the second inning, singling home a run with two outs. Minor would also strike in the eighth inning, leading things off with a double. After notching a strikeout, Niese gave up a triple and single to the next two hitters, driving in two runs. 

Minor had a fantastic start, limiting the Mets to just one run. Because of that, Niese was saddled with the loss despite a decent start. He dropped to 7-10. Niese will take on the Marlins in his next start.


Jonathon Niese sunk by an error Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The seventh inning proved to be problematic. Niese recorded the first two out quickly via the strikeout. With two outs in the inning, Niese gave up a triple to Dee Gordon. After a Yasiel Puig walk, Adrian Gonzalez reached on a throwing error. Niese was pulled at that point. The two runs he left on base managed to score on a double. Both runs were charged to Niese, though they were unearned runs. 

With the loss, Niese dropped to 7-9. He’ll take on the Braves in his next start.
