The San Francisco Giants' Sergio Romo is probably best known for throwing the final pitch that helped the Giants win the 2012 World Series. But the Giants' closer is also earning a reputation for his political activism. At the team's victory parade, Romo sported a blue T-shirt that read “I just look illegal ” -- a cheeky comment on how the debate over immigration reform is all too often reduced to ethnic stereotypes. Now, Romo is reported to be joining forces with the Three Twins Ice Cream company to develop Sergio Romo's Mexican Chocolate.

PHOENIX - Sergio Romo just can't get away from them. At home, in his professional career, here at the World Baseball Classic. He is surrounded by Dodgers. Long before he became a closer for the San Francisco Giants, and a World Series hero and champion, Romo was the son of a die-hard Dodgers fan - and, like many of his friends and neighbors in Brawley, Calif., became such a fan himself. "My dad is my hero, and we all grew up Dodgers fans," he said Saturday. "Especially in Brawley; it's a big Dodgers town.

DETROIT — This is not moneyball. This is retro ball. In all the years Barry Bonds packed the ballpark in San Francisco, delighting fans with his spectacular feats of power, the Giants never won a championship. In this post-Bonds era, the Giants are on the verge of their second World Series championship in three years. As he stood in the visiting clubhouse, General Manager Brian Sabean laughed at the question of whether pitching and defense had gone out of style. "We're proving it hasn't," he said, "and at the right time.

Barry Zito pitched into the ninth inning in his best start of the season, Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer and the San Francisco Giants made it four wins in five games with a 3-0 victory over the Florida Marlins on Tuesday night. Zito was close to his 11th career complete game and second this season, but Manager Bruce Bochy pulled him for Sergio Romo after Wes Helms' one-out single on the left-hander's 107th pitch.

Italy did not advance past the first round in the first two World Baseball Classics, but it scored an early upset this year by rallying for two runs in the ninth inning Thursday night to defeat Mexico, 6-5, in a WBC opener at Chase Field in Phoenix. And a couple of Dodgers -- and another with a Dodger connection -- were right in the middle of the action. Dodgers utilityman Nick Punto ignited Italy's rally with a one-out double against Mexico (and San Francisco Giants) closer Sergio Romo.

Mexico is in a tenuous position after being upset by Italy, 6-5, in its opening game of the World Baseball Classic in Phoenix. It already can't afford another loss, and next up is a game Friday night at Chase Field against the United States and National League Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey. Mexico has another problem, too: Closer Sergio Romo, who got the save in the San Francisco Giants' World Series clincher last season, was extended in a 26-pitch ninth inning Thursday night.

The San Francisco Giants will be without their best hitter for the remainder of the regular season. In time, Melky Cabrera's 50-game drug suspension could turn out to be a lethal blow to their postseason ambitions. But that time hasn't come. The Dodgers fell half a game behind the Giants in the National League West on Monday night, as Clayton Kershaw was outpitched at Dodger Stadium by fellow left-hander Madison Bumgarner in a 2-1 victory for the visitors. Kershaw pitched masterfully, limiting the Giants to two runs and six hits over eight innings.

They don't allow much room for error in pitching duels. One key hit or one poorly timed mistake can prove all the difference. The Dodgers and Giants were matched in a duel of two outstanding young left-handers Monday, and on a muggy Los Angeles summer night enough little things went the Giants' way for them to take a 2-1 victory before a disappointing Dodger Stadium crowd of 36,878. Winning the opener of the three-game series enabled the Giants to regain the lead over the Dodgers by half a game in the National League West, and take some momentum out of an L.A. team buoyed by their just-completed 7-3 road trip.

The Angels have one last chance to avoid a winless February. They must beat the Dodgers on Thursday, with Clayton Kershaw waiting to greet them. The Angels rallied against San Francisco Giants closer Sergio Romo for two runs in the ninth inning on Wednesday, resulting in an 8-8 tie. An Angels cast of minor leaguers scored twice in each of the final three innings against three of the Giants' best relievers: Santiago Casilla, Jose Mijares and Romo....

- Living on borrowed time. That's all the Detroit Tigers were doing on a miserable, rainy Sunday night at Comerica Park. Because no one else would do it, Marco Scutaro - who else? - stepped up and put them out of their misery. With a 10th-inning single that landed in front of a too-deep center fielder Austin Jackson, the San Francisco Giants nailed down a sweep in the World Series. Ryan Theriot came across the plate with the winning run in a 4-3 victory that was more workmanlike than a thing of beauty.

Thousands of fans crowded the San Francisco Civic Center plaza Sunday night to watch the Giants clinch the World Series on a hastily erected Jumbotron -- an undulating mass of happy humanity. "No way was I going to miss this," said Eric Reynolds, 42, of Walnut Creek. Reynolds was sitting in folding chairs with Shari Mofin, both bundled up against the chill of an October San Francisco night. "This is a great party.

SAN FRANCISCO - Miguel Cabrera shuffled slowly back to the visiting dugout, holding his bat in one hand and his helmet in the other. He might be the best hitter in the major leagues, and he could have tied the game with one mighty swing. If, that is, someone had gotten on base in the ninth inning. No one did, and the team with thunder in its lineup is halfway to defeat in this World Series. The Detroit Tigers were expected to pummel the San Francisco Giants, not only because of the big bats of Cabrera and Prince Fielder but because the Giants could not use their best starting pitchers until Game 3. Well, look who is giant now. The Giants swiped the first two games of the series, with Ryan Vogelsong and Matt Cain set for the next two games.
