SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - San Francisco closer Sergio Romo says trusting his teammates made him a better pitcher. He was able to convert their support into positive energy last year en route to the Giants' second World Series title in three seasons.
On Tuesday, Romo faced batters for the first time since sneaking a fastball past Detroit's Miguel Cabrera for the final out of the World Series. Getting back on the mound got Romo's adrenaline going as he prepares for his first full season as a closer.
Romo said watching his teammates celebrate after the last out of each clinching game were his top four memorable moments of the season.
