Mark Melancon slammed the door on the Rockies on Friday, preserving a two-run advantage and earning his 17th save of the season in the process.

Advice: He did allow a leadoff single to start the ninth inning, though no damage came of it. He has been terrific to this point in the season, registering a 2.32 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 38/6 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings. He has now made good on 17 of his 20 save chances on the season, and looks poised to hold the job for the remainder of the season.
