Sergio Romo watches Delmon Young hit a game tying sac fly.

The Phillies have had a bit of a rough season what with Roy Halladay crashing to earth and…well…just employing Delmon Young.  But they were fighting hard on the west cost today.  Sergio Romo came in to shut down the Phillies offense but ended up blowing his second save of the season.  He wasn’t dominated but two runs are two runs.

The damage:  2 hits, 1 walk, 2 runs.  Fortunately for Romo, he got out of the inning with the score only tied at 3-3.  The Giants couldn’t do anymore damage in the bottom of the 9th, but in the 10th Anthony Bastardo decided to do his best Sergio Romo impression.  Same deal.  Nothing spectacular but when you just need a run to win this is all you have to do:
