Melancon Earns First Save Since Over A Year Ago

After Madison Bumgarner pitched a great 8 inning game with only giving up 3 hits in total,  Manager Bruce Bochy turned the job over to Mark Melancon in the 9th.

Melancon initially gave up a base hit but finished out the inning cleanly getting 1 strikeout along the way.

This save is Mark Melancon’s only save since June 20, 2017. Note that Melancon has yet to earn the closing spot yet as we saw Sam Dyson close the last three games. Keep an eye out on the closing pitcher role in San Francisco until Hunter Strickland returns cause right now it’s looking like a committee job for the closer role.
