Yankees LHP Jordan Montgomery limited the Blue Jays to just one run on four hits in six innings during the Yankees' 9-1 win at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Montgomery struck out five batters and walked three while throwing 91 pitches on the day. He kept the Blue Jays off the board until the fifth inning when Steve Pearce hit an RBI single for the team's only run of the game.
The Yankees were holding onto a slim 2-1 lead when Montgomery departed, but New York broke things open in the bottom half of the inning by scoring seven runs. He went on to earn his second win in as many starts to improve to 2-0 on the season.
"I found a good tempo the first three innings and worked a little slower in the fourth and the fifth," he said after the game, per YES Network. "In the sixth, I got right back there quick and fast."
Montgomery's outing marked the second time he has limited his opponent to one run this season.
Through four starts this season, he is 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA.
