Jon Niese was knocked around for six runs over five frames in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.
It was an ugly night for Niese, as he surrendered nine hits, walked five and also hit a batter. There was reason to believe that Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage could work some magic with Niese, but so far it hasn't worked out. He's sporting a 5.94 ERA and has allowed at least four runs in four of six outings. The southpaw will try for better results next week in Cincinnati. May 3 - 9:56 PM
