New York Mets SP Jonathon Niese (back) disagreed with manager Terry Collins' assessment that Niese pitched with a stiff back in his last start. Niese said he did have a back issue but does not think it affected his performance. Niese has struck out 20 batters and walked 19 in 36 2/3 innings this season.
