Romo allowed one hit but still recorded his 12th save pitching the ninth inning in a 4-3 victory over the Pirates on Saturday. With the Marlins, he doesn't get many save opportunities, and Romo owns a 5.25 ERA, but opponents are mostly scoring against him in non-save situations. Romo is 12-for-13 in the save opportunities he's received. He also owns a 1.42 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 24 innings this season.
Romo gave up a run on two hits and a walk while striking out two in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Giants to record his 11th save of the season. It wasn't pretty, but the Marlins gave the veteran reliever enough of a cushion to survive an erratic outing. Romo now has a 4.50 ERA and 21:11 K:BB through 20 innings, numbers which put him firmly in the second tier of fantasy closers, but he's come through when it's mattered, converting 11 of his 12 save chances so far.
Romo tossed a perfect ninth inning to earn the save against Washington on Monday. The 36-year-old was called on to protect a one-run lead and forced three straight flyouts to close things out. He's now made three straight scoreless appearances, lowering his ERA to 4.26 and earning a save in each of those outings.
Romo got the save against the Tigers on Thursday, striking out one without allowing a baserunner in a scoreless ninth inning to lock down a 5-2 victory for the Marlins. Romo successfully protected the three-run lead afforded to him by a ninth-inning grand slam from Garrett Cooper, picking up his ninth save in 10 opportunities. His 4.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP remain unspectacular, but Romo seems set to keep acting as the top option at closer for the Marlins when opportunities arise.
Romo struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his eighth save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Tigers. One night after blowing his first save of the season, the veteran reliever bounced back in fine fashion. Romo's 4.76 ERA and 18:10 K:BB through 17 innings are far from elite, but until he gets traded into a setup role for a contender or the Marlins decide to give some of their younger arms a look with the game on the line, he figures to continue picking up saves for a team that rarely blows out the opposition.
