JON NIESE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Given a 7-1 lead after a four-run sixth, Niese surrendered a leadoff homer to Justin...

After starting the season with a 5-4 record, sporting a dazzling 2.88 ERA, Niese dropped his next four decesions leaving the lefty searching for answers. Those answers came on Monday when he found his groove, striking out...
