Player Notes
Mark Melancon picked up save No. 29 in the Pirates' 7-4 defeat of the Phillies on Saturday.

Advice: Melancon racked up two strikeouts in a perfect ninth inning. He is sporting a fantastic 1.55 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 38/9 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings this season for the Pirates, who are trying to stay within striking distance of a Wild Card spot. They might consider trading their impending free agent closer if things go south.

Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless ninth inning Thursday against the Brewers to earn his 28th save.

Advice: Melancon struck out one in the clean inning of work. It was a refreshing turn after the veteran had blown his previous two save chances. Even with the blown saves, Melancon is having another tremendous year, owning a 1.59 ERA and 1.01 WHIP through 39 2/3 innings.
