"He's tough enough to handle this and deal with this -- only reason he's off today is because he's thrown three days in a row," Bochy said of Romo.
That's just a one-day occurrence, Bochy said. The closer job is Romo's. Bochy planned to meet with Romo in his office after batting practice to discuss his closer's recent outings.
Bochy and Romo have each chalked up the weekend's shortcomings to a bout of bad luck. For the most part, they've liked the pitches he's thrown. A combination of unfortunate hops and defensive lapses has helped contribute to the late-game issues.
"I'm just in disbelief, really, especially the way it went down," Romo said following Saturday's collapse, in which he allowed a two-run, inside-the-park home run to put the Rockies ahead in the ninth.
Searching for an explanation, Romo attributed the Giants' unraveling to the fickle nature of the sport they play.
"That's baseball," he then repeated.
"You look at his outings, some of those pitches aren't too bad," Bochy said Sunday. "He's had some bad luck and that's what you're going to have.
"It's just the way this game goes sometimes."
Romo has blown four saves this season. Three of them have come against the Rockies.
