The 21-year-old Burgos, who has two major league saves, is still
getting used to the job.After entering a tie game in the seventh inning, Burgos gave up
a leadoff triple to Brian Anderson and threw a wild pitch that
allowed the go-ahead run to score in a 6-5 loss to the Chicago
White Sox on Monday."I like his stuff, but he's still learning how to pitch,"
Royals manager Buddy Bell said.Bobby Jenks worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth for
Chicago, coaxing Wilson Valdez to ground into an inning-ending
double play.Anderson had a two-run single and Tadahito Iguchi added an RBI
double in a five-run second for the White Sox. All the runs came
off Danny Tamayo, a right-hander from Notre Dame who was brought
over from minor league camp to pitch.Tamayo retired only five of his 13 batters, yielding five hits
and two walks.Doug Mientkiewicz went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer off
Brandon McCarthy and four RBI for the Royals. Mientkiewicz also
scored in the first on Angel Berroa's two-out single.Hideo Nomo, who signed a minor league contract with the White
Sox, started and gave up two runs and three hits in two innings,
striking out two.Left-hander Jimmy Gobble, who is out of minor league options and
is trying to earn a spot in the Royals' bullpen, worked a perfect
inning, striking out one, to lower his ERA to 2.57.Right fielder Reggie Sanders was scratched from the Royals'
lineup with tightness in his elbow.
