Mark Melancon picked up his second blown save in the last three days, when he was unable to protect a three-run advantage against the Reds on Friday.
It unfortunately spoiled another brilliant effort from Francisco Liriano. Melancon allowed a one-out single to Ryan Ludwick, who came around to score an unearned run when Todd Frazier reached on an error. A Zack Cozart single then put the tying run on base in the form of pinch-runner Billy Hamilton. After Hamilton swiped second, Devin Mesoraco reached on a two-run infield single on the ninth pitch of his at bat. While the runs were unearned, it’s a black mark on an otherwise stellar season for Melancon. Fri, Sep 20, 2013 10:59:00 PM
