Player Notes
Mark Melancon tossed a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Dodgers for his 21st save of the season.

Advice: Melancon gave up a leadoff single to Corey Seager, but then induced a double play grounder from Justin Turner before striking out Adrian Gonzalez to end it. The 31-year-old is 21-for-22 in save chances this season to go along with a 1.53 ERA and 23/8 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. If the Pirates fall out of contention, they figure to get plenty of calls on him leading up to the deadline.

Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants on Monday to earn his 20th save.

Advice: It wasn't textbook -- Melancon gave up a leadoff single and a line drive that turned into a double play before getting a flyout to end the game -- but it all looks the same in the scorebook. Melancon now has 20 saves in 21 chances this year, third-most in the National League. He owns a delightful 1.59 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 22/8 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings overall.
