Sergio Romo hasn’t allowed a hit since Game 5 of NLCS

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.

    It will be interesting to see what the Giants do with Wilson next season. A free agent at the end of next season, I don’t really see them re-signing him for an expensive contract, when you have guys like Romo capable of doing the same job for comparative peanuts.

      He just needs to grow the beard a little longer to transition from homeless to wizard!

    I wonder if anyone outside the Bay Area realizes that Sergio Romo is doing this with what Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow calls a “no-dot” slider. It’s not like a typical slider. You can’t detect the normal slider spin. He throws it just like a fastball. There’s no slinging motion. But it acts just like a frisbee, cutting way to the left. And his fastball moves the other direction. He’s not putting up these kind of dominant numbers because of his body type or the velocity of his pitchers. It’s because of his mastery of placement, movement, and the way he feels obligated to be successful for his team.

    the guy has been really impressive this series. i didn’t see much of him this year, but he is overpowering tiger bats, along with anyone else they run out there. giants are just getting it done, and they way they have approached the tiger lineup, getting ahead in counts and capitalizing on hitter mistakes, has been really depressing to see as a tiger fan. great job by the giants, and congrats on another WS title.

    still holding out hope that detroit can win a couple home games and at least make the fans sweat a little, but with the giants making their own luck and stringing hits together, the hope window is obv slim.
