Montgomery (5-6) allowed seven runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over 3.1 innings Friday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Mets.

The Mets entered the third inning down 2-1 and hung five runs on Montgomery in the frame with three runs, three walks and a throwing error. He was bounced in the fourth inning after coughing up a solo shot to Francisco Lindor. In his previous three outings, Montgomery had allowed just two earned runs through 15.2 innings and now owns a 3.71 ERA on the year. Even with the rough appearance Friday, the 28-year-old is sporting a 2.52 ERA over his last eight starts.
