Pirates P Mark Melancon earns save in win over Phillies
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon picked up his eighth save of the season in Monday night's 4-3 win over the Phillies. 

Melancon had a two-run cushion in the ninth and allowed a leadoff home run to Odubel Herrera. He then recorded three outs in the next four betters to preserve the win for the Pirates. 

By giving up a home run, Melancon snapped an eight-game streak of not allowing an earned run in a game. Even so, it's his third consecutive appearance that he's been able to record a save.

Pirates' Mark Melancon earns seventh save Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon gave up a pair of hits Sunday but pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his seventh save.

Melancon opened the ninth by allowing a single then surrendered a one-out infield single to put the winning run on base. He followed it up with a strikeout and groundout to end the game. Melancon owns a 3.77 ERA and 9:4 K:BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings. He hasn't given up an earned run in eight straight appearances.

"It was good to see [Melancon] finish things off," manager Clint Hurdle said to MLB.com. "It's a vote of confidence for the team. They believe in him, and when he goes out there to get things done, he's got to feel better about how things finish.

"He's incrementally getting a little bit better every time out."

Resurgent Pirates closer Mark Melancon notches sixth save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Much-maligned Mark Melancon, whose job appeared to be in jeopardy early this season, has rebounded with a fine run. He posted his sixth save of the year for the Pirates by retiring the Cardinals in order Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd at PNC Park.

Melancon, whose ERA was 8.53 after blowing a save with a three-run ninth on April 21 as some were complaining about decreased velocity, has responded with seven straight shutout innings. He has allowed just three hits and one walk during that stretch.

Pirates' Mark Melancon unavailable Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon is unavailable to pitch Sunday after racking up three saves in the last three days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Melancon has dealt with some velocity issues this April and owns a 5.79 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but he hasn't surrendered a run in any of his three appearances over the last three days. With the closer getting a scheduled break, the team could turn to lefty Tony Watson or righty Jared Hughes in a save opportunity Sunday.
