NEW YORK -- A day after Jonathon Niese said he was pitching Sunday's season finale, Terry Collins made it official.

Collins confirmed Niese would pitch on regular rest against the Milwaukee Brewers in Game No. 162. The alternative had been Daisuke Matsuzaka on short rest, so that Niese could call it a season.
