Montgomery allowed just four hits during the outing and he received his second win of the season for his effort. He now has a 2.04 ERA on the season. He also struck out a season-high 10 batters while not walking anyone.
Over his five starts this season, Montgomery has earned a quality start in four of the five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at San Diego.
Montgomery threw 7 1/3 innings, allowed seven hits and walked two batters during the game.
Montgomery (1-2) has a 2.73 ERA with 12 strikeouts and eight walks in 26 1/3 innings of work this season.
Montgomery was staked to an 8-0 lead after the third inning of this one. The only run Montgomery allowed Saturday came on an RBI double by George Springer in the fifth inning.
The 25-year-old lefty lowered his ERA to 1.89, as he has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his three outings to start his career.
"I thought he threw pretty decent early on," manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "But I don't think he really commanded the strike zone later in his outing as well as he did the two previous times. But all in all, it was a good outing for him. I think it was a credit to his catcher to get him through it. If we're really being honest, he struggled a little bit today."
He'll look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for Thursday at home against the Giants.
"I'm not sure if he was overhyped or what, but the fastball command just wasn't there in that first inning," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said afterward. "I think once he got his juices flowing he started throwing the ball a lot better."
Montgomery retired 11 straight batters at one point.
"I thought he settled down and threw the ball pretty good," McClendon said. "The changeup came around, the breaking ball came around. He was in and out with the fastball. I was very pleased with his outing."
Montgomery picked up the loss after throwing seven innings and allowing five hits and two earned runs. He struck out three batters and walked another.
Montgomery has a 2.08 ERA with seven strikeouts in 13 innings this season.
Montgomery, who was promoted from Triple-A Tacoma prior to the game, surrendered a run-scoring double to Mark Teixeira in the third inning for his only blemish of the evening. He was in line for the win until closer Fernando Rodney coughed up the game-tying run in the ninth that sent the game to extras.
Montgomery allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings pitched. Of his 97 pitches, 64 were strikes.
