Montgomery (6-7) took the loss Saturday as the Yankees were routed 12-2 by the Rays, coughing up seven runs on six hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out three.

The lefty served up a three-run shot to Brandon Lowe in the top of the first inning, and it was all downhill from there for both Montgomery and the Yankees. He got the hook after 71 pitches (44 strikes) as New York failed once again to lock up a wild-card spot, and he wraps up the regular season with a 3.83 ERA and 162:51 K:BB through 157.1 innings.
