    • Giants' Mark Melancon: Takes third loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Melancon (0-3) gave up one run on one hit -- a walkoff home run -- over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss to the Cardinals on Saturday. Melancon was called upon in a tie game in the 10th inning and recorded two outs before Tyler O'Neill won the game with a solo shot. The 33-year-old had a run of nine appearances with just one earned run, but he's given up three runs in his last two outings.

    • Melancon gave up a hit over a scoreless inning while striking out two in Saturday's 3-0 win over Colorado. Melancon is beginning to look like his former dominant self, posting a 1.74 ERA and 10.5 K/9 over his last 10 appearances. The 33-year-old picked up a couple of saves at the end of August during closer Will Smith's brief slump, but the latter has since righted the ship and even picked up a rare save for San Francisco on Saturday.

    • Giants' Mark Melancon: Nails down third save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Melancon struck out two batters and allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth to earn the save in the 3-1 win over Texas on Sunday. Melancon earned a save in back-to-back games this weekend, making him 3-for-7 in save chances this season. The 33-year-old owns a 2.83 ERA and it appears he could start seeing some more ninth-inning action after closer Will Smith had a couple rough outings Friday and Saturday.

    • Giants' Mark Melancon: Grabs one-out save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Melancon recorded the final out of Saturday's 5-3 win over the Rangers to pick up his second save of the season. Will Smith loaded the bases en route to retiring the first two batters in the ninth inning, so Melancon was called in to put out the fire. It's his first save since June 21, and while Smith's job as closer likely isn't in immediate jeopardy, another rough appearance or two could allow Melancon to sneak into the ninth-inning mix.

    • Giants' Mark Melancon: Pitches in back-to-back games
      By RotoWire Staff

      Melancon gave up a hit over a scoreless inning in Friday's 6-3 loss to Arizona. This outing was noteworthy because it was the first time Melancon has pitched in back-to-back games since returning from an elbow injury June 3. The former All-Star closer has been used as a setup man this season, and that is unlikely to change following the success Will Smith has had as the club's primary closing option. Friday's outing lowered Melancon's ERA to 3.32 over 21.2 innings, but his 6.2 K/9 and 1.48 WHIP are both the worst of his career.
