Romo picked up the save after allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday night against the Phillies. Romo recorded the first two outs without issue, though he would allow the winning run to come to the plate after surrendering a single to left. He would then slam the door by inducing a flyout. It hasn't always been easy for Romo this season, but he's converted on each of his last two save opportunities and continues to see chances late in close ballgames. He now owns a 4.76 ERA with 23 strikeouts over 28.1 innings this season.
Romo allowed one run on two hits over one inning and picked up the save Thursday night against the Cardinals. Romo entered the ballgame with a two-run lead, and after surrendering an RBI double to Yadier Molina, the right-hander managed to pick off the runner at second base for the third out of the inning. Romo sits with a 4.94 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with a 22:13 K:BB over 27.1 innings this season, but he's been fairly reliable when it's come to slamming the door. He's blown just one save chance this season: against Detroit on May 21.
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.
