Mark Melancon put out a fire in the ninth inning, earning his 40th save in Monday's 5-2 win against the Marlins.
Antonio Bastardo started the inning, but allowed back-to-back singles to Marcell Ozuna and Casey McGehee to put runners on first and third. Melancon entered and allowed a run to score on a ground out, but got Adeiny Hechavarria to hit into a game-ending 4-6-3 double play. Business as usual for Melancon, who's now 40-for-42 in save situations with a 1.50 ERA and a 44/12 K/BB ratio in 60 innings. Aug 24 - 11:22 PM
