Sergio Romo allowed two runs on three hits to blow a save chance in Mexico's loss to Italy during World Baseball Classic play Thursday.

Romo wasn't terribly sharp, but he didn't get much help from his defense. Left fielder Edgar Gonzalez, who has played mostly the infield during his career, misplayed two balls in the ninth, including Anthony Rizzo's go-ahead double. Romo will be the Giants' main closer this season, though manager Bruce Bochy has expressed a desire to keep his workload down.
