Giants closer Sergio Romo relieved Jeremy Affeldt in the ninth inning to secure a two-out save Thursday night against the Rockies.Romo struck out Jordan Pacheco and Dexter Fowler to secure an 8-6 victory. He improved his ERA to 3.00 after notching his 13th save in 15 chances.
“No Romo, the Giants closer is locked and loaded for 40+ saves. But he does have to be aware that if Brian Wilson is pitching back to his 2010 form, the job is his. The Giant fans want the BEARD to close games, but for now Romo is the logical choice. I would take him with a grain of salt this season.”
