Mets starting pitcher Jonathon Niese enjoyed some pretty ridiculous run support from his teammates Saturday, but wasn't around to enjoy the whole thing. He worked 5 2/3 innings in a 14-5 Mets victory, but couldn't finish the sixth inning. After the game, the Mets announced that Niese left with a rapid heart beat. It evidently isn't as bad as it sounds, though, as the condition could be caused by dehydration -- and it was a bit warm in Texas Saturday afternoon. Also, Niese reportedly met with the Rangers team doctor and feels comfortable enough with the prognosis to wait until Tuesday to be further evaluated. He was also said to be downplaying the issue to reporters after the game -- all the while walking around and smiling (Andy Martino via Twitter).

Niese picked up the victory, moving to 7-6, and lowered his ERA to 3.67. The only two runs he allowed were solo home runs and he struck out seven. It was a big bounce-back outing for Niese, as he had a string of six consecutive quality starts snapped last time out against the Angels.

He probably smoked a blunt the night before. Hopefully he gets better and takes better care of himself.
