Chris Denorfia's third-inning double was the only hit Jonathon Niese gave up in the Mets' 3-0 victory over the Padres in the second game of a day-night doubleheader on Thursday.
Niese struck out six and didn't walk a batter in a game that lasted just 2:18 and also featured a triple play turned by the Padres.
Niese replaced fellow lefty Oliver Perez in the rotation after he came off the disabled list on Saturday. In his first game, Niese went seven innings and allowed a run aganst the Marlins. Thursday he was even better.
