Trainers returned to attend toSanchez and affixed a shin guard to the rookie catchers left leg. Sanchez flewout to center later in the at bat and remained in the game to catch Barry Zito.Hes pretty beat up, Bochy said. He has a contusion on theleft leg from the knee down.Romo came in to relieve Zito with one out in the ninth andsuccessfully converted his fifth career save. But the final out came at aprice, as Romo aggravated his right knee injury, sustained last week whilestretching, as he gloved Alfonso Sorianos ground ball back to the mound.Hes getting looked at, Bochy said. We think its fine.Romo was in the game in a save situation because of Santiago Casillas rightknee injury.
