Worth noting

• Despite his back stiffening in Friday night's game, center fielder Coco Crisp was back in the starting lineup on Saturday, with the team reporting no concern regarding the veteran leadoff man.

"We'll keep an eye on him, but he's OK," Melvin said. "He knows we have some other options here and you don't want to go out there if you're not 100 percent, so he feels good enough to play."

Crisp collected three hits -- a leadoff home run and two fifth-inning doubles -- in Friday's win.
