Romo Moment Number 5: Romo Gets’ Puig for Final Out with Bases Loaded

Sergio Romo was always a fiery competitor. This inning came close to the end of the 2015 season. The Giants were down south in L.A for a weekend series. It came down to Sunday, where the Giants needed a win to keep the Dodgers from celebrating a division title in front of them.

The stage was set: Two outs, bases loaded, and Yasiel Puig at the plate. Puig has been the bane of the existence of Giants fans since he burst on the scene in 2013. Puig, known for his theatrics and demonstrative actions in the box, was up with a chance to put on the celebration of all celebrations. Who knows what celebration he would’ve pulled out of his rear end if he got the walk-off, division winning hit, against Romo and the Giants of all opponents.

Of course, Romo got him to ground out to short. No big deal. Drama averted? Probably. But who cares. The Giants were well out of the division race at that time, so it was already a forgone conclusion they’d win the division. It was nice to have the celebration delayed though. Want to take it in?
