Mariners waste strong start from Mike Montgomery on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Mariners rookie starter Mike Montgomery posted a strong outing against the Twins on Saturday. The young left-hander allowed just one run on four hits over six solid innings. He walked two and struck out six, but was left with a no-decision in the 3-2 loss.

Montgomery left the game leading 2-1, but the bullpen coughed up the lead in the bottom of the ninth, making this the fourth straight start without a win for Montgomery.

Montgomery has been rather inconsistent over his last handful of starts, but he has been better his last two times out. He has allowed a total of three runs in 12 2/3 innings in those pair of outings.


Mariners SP Mike Montgomery rebounds with strong effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) After three mediocre-to-awful starts that threatened to ruin what had been a fine rookie season, Mariners left-hander Mike Montgomery stopped the bleeding Monday night.

Montgomery wasn't lights-out, but he did allow just two earned runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against Arizona. He walked four and struck out five.

Home runs by Paul Goldschmidt and Welington Castillo in the first two innings appeared to have Montgomery reeling again. But he righted himself and later retired eight in a row.

Montgomery owns a 3.20 ERA, but hasn't won a game since July 5.


Mariners SP Mike Montgomery mashed in Motown


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Mariners starter Mike Montgomery was shaky in the first two innings Wednesday in Detroit. And that's the good news.

The bad news is that he was clobbered in a third inning that he couldn't survive.

Montgomery yielded two baserunners in both the first and second, but escaped. There was no escape in the third, when he yielded three walks and a single before Nick Castellanos unloaded a 448-foot grand slam to center. A single, double and error ended his night. He finished having allowed six earned runs on six hits and five walks before his merciful removal.

The southpaw has sent his ERA soaring from 1.62 to 3.25 over his last three starts.


Mariners' Mike Montgomery whiffs nine Yankees, takes no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) Mariners young left-hander Mike Montgomery held his own in a solid effort against the Yankees on Friday. Montgomery gave up three runs on seven hits over six innings of work. He walked three and struck out nine, but was left with a no-decision in the 4-3 loss.

Montgomery gave up an early second-inning home run to Chris Young, putting the Mariners down 1-0. The rookie pitcher left the game with the score tied 3-3, but the Mariners' bullpen allowed the go-ahead and winning run to score in the seventh.

Still, this was a solid outing for Montgomery, who had given up five runs in his previous outing. He was able to post a strong start against a potent Yankees lineup. His ERA now sits at 2.51.


Mariners set rotation to open second half of season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"I've been impressed with how he goes about his business," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said of Montgomery. "He's certainly not intimidated. He has a tremendous work ethic. I like what I see. I think he's got a chance to be pretty good."

After Montgomery's start Friday, the team will send Hisashi Iwakuma to the mound Saturday, followed by Felix Hernandez on Sunday. Hernandez could have his start moved depending if he pitches in Tuesday's All-Star game.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners SP Mike Montgomery tosses shutout Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Mariners pitcher Mike Montgomery tossed his second-consecutive complete game shutout during Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Padres.

Montgomery only allowed one hit over nine innings of work. He struck out seven and walked four during the outing. He is now 3-2 with a 1.62 ERA on the season.

"He's shown a lot of poise," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "I had no idea what to expect when we first got him. Each and every outing, he impresses me even more. Tonight was no different."

Montgomery has received a quality start in five of his six starts this season. He has allowed a total of four runs over his last 25 1/3 innings.

"He goes out and pitches," catcher Mike Zunino said. "He competes. He's not scared to pitch to guys and attack. And that's helped him a lot. He's got good stuff. He's throwing all four pitches for strikes and attacking guys. And that's a good recipe for success."


Mariners SP Mike Montgomery strikes out 10 in Tuesday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Mariners pitcher Mike Montgomery pitched a complete game shutout during Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Royals.

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.


Mariners SP Mike Montgomery allows four runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/19/2015) Mariners starting pitcher Mike Montgomery picked up his second loss of the season after allowing four earned runs against the Giants on Thursday.

Mariners SP Mike Montgomery gets first career win on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Mariners rookie pitcher Mike Montgomery turned in a solid outing on Saturday against the Astros to pick up his first big-league win. The young left-hander went six innings, allowing just one run on six hits. He walked three and struck out four. 

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.


Mariners SP Mike Montgomery goes seven innings in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/7/2015) Mariners starting pitcher Mike Montgomery came through with a solid performance on Sunday, but it wasn't enough in his team's 3-1 loss to the Rays.

"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.


Mariners' Montgomery's MLB debut spoiled by Rodney's blown save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Mariners pitcher Mike Montgomery, a former top-20 prospect, got off to a dominant start in his first career start, but was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night against the Yankees. 

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.

"I don't think that's a priority," Cash said. "I think we're going to try and find what will be the best matchup for us. You factor in a lot of things, and if you look at our first couple of games, it's not like there's a pressing need for a left-handed pitcher in there.

"We're still working on the rotation and how everything will unfold."
