Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos serves up game-winning home run
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/24/15) Diamondbacks reliever Enrique Burgos (0-2) picked up a loss to the Cubs in Saturday's 9-6 defeat. Burgos, who hadn't allowed a run in three straight outings, served up a game-winning three-run home run to Anthony Rizzo in the top of the ninth inning.
The Diamondbacks haven't officially named Burgos the closer, though he did successfully record two straight saves earlier in the week. But he took a step backwards with Saturday's performance and it remains to be seen if manager Chip Hale calls on him if a save chance occurs on Sunday.

|(5/21/15) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale went to reliever Brad Ziegler in the ninth inning Thursday against the Marlins. Ziegler was able to preserve a one-run lead, picking up his first save this season during a 7-6 win.
Ziegler, who has 34 career saves, struck out Giancarlo Stanton to lead off the bottom of the ninth. Martin Prado then flied out to center before Ziegler finished off the inning with a strike out of Christian Yelich. He needed just nine pitches (eight strikes) to retire the side.
Hale leaned on Ziegler and Enrique Burgos to close out games against the Marlins. Burgos recorded saves Monday and Tuesday before Ziegler earned the save Thursday.
D-Backs ready to go with Enrique Burgos in closer's role?
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) After recording his second save in as many days Tuesday against the Marlins, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale stopped short of naming Enrique Burgos the team's new closer. However, Hale is definitely pleased by the recent results.
"It's going to make it harder on us now in the ninth," Hale said, per The Arizona Republic. "We have more guys who can pitch in the ninth. It's fantastic."
Hale opted to pitch Burgos in the ninth Tuesday since Brad Ziegler was unavailable after throwing two innings Monday.
"I love it," Burgos said of closing games. "I just like the adrenaline going on, the pressure. Everybody's watching you. I think it's a good feeling."
When asked if he will continue to use Burgos in the closer's role, a smiling Hale said, "We'll see. We'll see what the matchups look like."
