Player Notes
Mark Melancon picked up his 12th save with a scoreless ninth inning as the Pirates downed the Marlins 5-2 on Wednesday.

Advice: Melancon saw the tying run step to the plate with two outs as a result of Jung-Ho Kang's fielding error and an Adeiny Hechavarria single, but he got Ichiro Suzuki to ground out to end the game. Despite early-season struggles and continued low velocity, Melancon has been getting the job done for the Pirates. He has allowed a run just once in his last 15 appearances and is now 12-for-13 in save chances with a 2.86 ERA and an 11/5 K/BB ratio in 22 innings.

Mark Melancon got a two-out save Friday against the Mets.

Advice: Melancon was called on to protect a three-run lead after Gerrit Cole was pulled with two on and one out in the ninth. He retired both of the batters he faced to finish off the win. Melancon's velocity still isn't close to what it was last year, but he's 10-for-11 in save chances and owns a 3.15 ERA over his first 20 appearances.
