Mark Melancon was asked to put out a fire in the bottom of the ninth and completed the task, earning his 29th save as the Pirates downed the Phillies on Thursday.
With a 4-0 lead, Jared Hughes put the first two batters he faced on base with a single and a walk, which made it a save situation and Melancon was brought into the ballgame. One of the inherited runners was allowed to score, but Melancon recorded a pair of strikeouts before getting Grady Sizemore to foul out on the third base side to end the game. Melancon is now 29-for-33 in save opportunities with a 3.53 ERA. Sep 11 - 10:45 PM
