Giants right-hander Sergio Romo had a dominant regular season, posting a fantastic 1.79 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 63/10 K/BB ratio across 55 1/3 innings.
And he’s been even better in these 2012 playoffs.
Romo blew through three straight batters in Saturday night’s World Series Game 3 victory over the Tigers and has now gone four straight appearances without surrendering a hit. He has a 0.93 ERA, a 0.52 WHIP and a 6/1 K/BB ratio in 9 2/3 innings this postseason while converting all three of his save opportunities.
The Giants’ starting rotation has been superb this October, but so has the bullpen. San Francisco can wrap up its second World Series title in three years on Sunday night with Matt Cain facing Max Scherzer.
