Mesa spoils day for Pirates, Wells

For the second stright day Mesa blew the save.
He's been excellent so far this year, having saved 23 straight until recently. But now he starting to look like the guy we knew in Philly. He's still a quality closer- by this year's standard's anyway.

Kip Wells missed out on the win, pitching 8 innings of one-run ball, while striking out six.

Wells is definitely a guy we like. He gets a reasonable K's and we believe his 4.06 ERA is deceptive considering he hasn't let up more than 3 runs in any of his last six outings (3-0). The Pittsburgh offense isn't much to look at, but Wells's closer, Mesa is still strong behind him.
