Player Notes
Mark Melancon tossed a perfect ninth inning to notch his 44th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Advice: Called upon to protect a two-run lead, Melancon had a stress-free ninth with a couple groundouts and a strikeout. The veteran closer has nailed down 44-of-48 save opportunities this season, including 14-of-15 since joining the Nationals.

Mark Melancon earned his 43rd save of the season Sunday in the Nationals' 10-7 defeat of the Pirates.

Advice: A nice bounceback outing from the veteran closer, who blew a save against his former team on Friday night. He worked a 1-2-3 inning Sunday on just 12 pitches, striking out one. Melancon has a 1.76 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 61/12 K/BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings this season, and now 13 saves as a member of the Nationals.

Sun, Sep 25 Rotoworld
Facing his former team for the first time since the July's trade, Mark Melancon blew a save Friday against the Pirates.

Advice: It was his first blown save with the Nationals and of course it came against his former team. Melancon gave up the tying run on a double from Sean Rodriguez with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. He bounced back with a scoreless 10th inning, but the Pirates eventually won the game in the 11th.
