Montgomery allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over 6.2 innings in Monday's win over Oakland. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision. Montgomery was thrashed for five runs during a disastrous third inning that included a three-run double by Elvis Andrus. After that, he gave up just one hit over his final 3.2 frames. He's allowed nine runs across 12.2 innings over his last two starts, raising his season ERA from 2.72 to 3.27 in the process. Montgomery now owns a 64:14 K:BB through 15 starts. The 29-year-old is lined up to start in Cleveland this weekend.
Montgomery allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings against Tampa Bay on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision. The Rays touched up Montgomery for two homers and three runs in the second inning, but he limited the damage to one run the rest of the way and escaped with a no-decision thanks to a late-innings New York comeback. This was arguably the left-hander's worst outing of the campaign, as he gave up a season-high four runs and notched a season-low two strikeouts. Nonetheless, he hasn't taken any losses over his past 11 starts and ranks 11th among qualified AL starters with a 2.97 ERA.
Montgomery (3-1) picked up the win in Friday's 12-3 victory over the Blue Jays, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five. The southpaw tossed only 54 of 93 pitches for strikes but bore down when he needed to, and Montgomery got a chance to relax after the Yankees erupted for an eight-run fifth inning. After settling for no-decisions in eight of his first nine starts, he's now won three of his last four while reeling off five straight quality starts. Montgomery will carry a 2.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 56:11 K:BB through 72.2 innings into his next outing.
Montgomery (2-1) earned the win over the Cubs on Saturday, pitching seven scoreless innings and allowing five hits while striking out five. The Yankees offense had little trouble putting runs on the board against Cubs rookie Matt Swarmer, allowing Montgomery to cruise to a stress-free win. He didn't allow any extra-base hits in the contest and prevented any Chicago players from reaching third base. The southpaw has pitched well all season but began the campaign without a win through nine outings. However, he's now picked up a pair of victories over his past three starts, posting a 1.33 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB over 20.1 innings during that span.
Montgomery allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five in 6.1 innings during Sunday's win over the Tigers. He didn't factor into the decision.

Over the first two months of the season, the left-hander has posted a 3.02 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 59.2 innings over 11 starts. Montgomery projects to make his next start at home against the Cubs on Saturday.
