Player Notes
Mark Melancon struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to pick up the save against the Rockies on Sunday.

Advice: Melancon went through the meat of the Rockies order, retiring Josh Rutledge, Corey Dickerson and Nolan Arenado to close out the win. He's now got a 2.17 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 42/6 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings of work. As the unquestioned closer on a Pirates team that should be in a lot of close ballgames the rest of the way, Melancon has plenty of fantasy value these days.

Mark Melancon tallied his 18th save of the season Sunday in the Pirates' 5-3 defeat of the Rockies.

Advice: Melancon retired all three Colorado batters that he faced -- fanning one -- in the top of the ninth inning. The right-hander has a fantastic 2.22 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 40/6 K/BB ratio in 44 2/3 frames this season. Pittsburgh has won its first three games following the All-Star break for the first time since 2004.
