Player Notes
Mark Melancon worked around a two-out double to throw a scoreless inning and record his 16th save in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Advice: Melancon made things interesting with a two-out double to Chris Owings, but he jammed Yasmany Tomas with two strikes and got him to lift a weak fly ball to right field for the final out of the evening. He has 16 saves and a 2.21 ERA in 20 1/3 innings. All is well in Pittsburgh.

Mark Melancon earned his 15th save of the season Monday in the Pirates' defeat of the Rockies.

Advice: Melancon was called on in the top of the ninth inning after Jared Hughes had allowed two baserunners. Melancon gave up a run on a DJ LeMahieu sacrifice fly, but that run was charged to Hughes and the Pittsburgh closer induced a game-ending flyout from Ryan Raburn moments later. Melancon has a 2.33 ERA in 19 1/3 innings this season, and he's 15-for-16 in save opportunities.

Mon, 23 May Rotoworld
Mark Melancon fired a scoreless ninth inning against the Rockies on Friday for his 14th save.

Advice: Holding a one-run lead, Melancon surrendered a one-out single to DJ LeMahieu before Daniel Descalso singled with two outs, but he survived after Charlie Blackmon lined out to left field to end it. He’s now 14-for-15 in save chances this year to go along with a 2.50 ERA and 13/4 K/BB ratio in 18 innings.
