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

6 Comments

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.

Prior to Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Giants, the Astros announced that outfielder Josh Reddick has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a leg infection. Outfielder Jake Marisnick has been recalled from Triple-A Fresno.

Reddick, 31, has only started two games in the last week due to the leg issue, so it makes sense that the Astros would simply put him on the DL to free up the roster spot. He’s hitting .227/.331/.409 with six home runs and 18 RBI in 154 plate appearances this season.

Marisnick, 27, put up a 1.014 OPS in 23 plate appearances with Fresno. His major league numbers this season are much less impressive, batting .141/.151/.282 in 87 trips to the plate.
