Niese earned his first win since May 9, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four in eight shutout innings Monday.

Niese's win was his first in 10 starts as he has not allowed more than three earned runs his last six outings. The Mets implemented a six-man rotation to help the younger pitchers, but Niese has benefited as well, keeping him fresh and healthy. Due to that six-man rotation and with only five games left before the All-Star break, Niese is not slated to pitch until after the Midsummer Classic.
