Mark Melancon carved through the White Sox in 1-2-3 fashion for his 22nd save as the Pirates held on for a 3-2 win on Wednesday.
Melancon struck out Avisail Garcia, got Adam LaRoche to ground out, and Alexei Ramirez to hit an infield pop-up to end the game. The right-hander has been successful in all but one of his 23 save chances with a 1.93 ERA and a 17/6 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings. Melancon has been one of the game's best closers despite some early season worries and diminished velocity. Jun 17 - 10:53 PM
