    • Melancon allowed an unearned run on one hit and no walks over one-third of an inning Tuesday as he earned the save in Game 2 of the NLCS. Atlanta held a five-run lead heading into the ninth inning, but the Dodgers rallied early in the frame. As a result, Melancon was called on to pick up the save, his second of the postseason. The right-hander has made six appearances during the playoffs in 2020, allowing one run (zero earned) on one hit and no walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings.

    • Melancon gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his 11th save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Marlins. The veteran closer has been scored upon just once in his last 10 appearances, although his 5:1 K:BB through 10 innings during that stretch isn't exactly dominant. On the year, Melancon now sports a 2.18 ERA and 1.06 WHIP, and he's blown only one of his 12 save chances.

Melancon is 10-for-11 in save chances and has a 2.04 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB across 17.2 innings this season.
