Mets' Niese can't make it through one inning

Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Mets pitcher Jon Niese left Friday's game against the Texas Rangers after one-third of an inning.

Niese, who gave up a game-commencing home run to Shin-Soo Choo and a single to Elvis Andrus, appeared to be in discomfort after being hit with an Alex Rios grounder, and was removed after 12 pitches.

Carlos Torres was called on in relief.
