Mike Montgomery wins Double-A debut

Montgomery.jpgThe Royals have had a pair of pitchers by the name of Montgomery over the years…Monty Montgomery was drafted by K.C. in 1968 and pitched in the big leagues from 1971-72.  Jeff Montgomery recorded 304 saves on his way to the Royals Hall of Fame.  A third Monty has taken another step on the road to Kansas City.

Mike Montgomery made his official Double-A debut today for NW Arkansas (his first start ended in a rainout).  While he walked four, Monty struck out eight and held Springfield to a pair of hits and a run over 5.2 IP.  He picked up the win in a 3-1 game, the sixth straight overall for NW Arkansas.  Mike was promoted to NW Arkansas after a sizzling start to the year – he earned Carolina League Pitcher of the Week honors in each of the first two weeks.  Thank you to the Naturals for sending this photo from today’s game!
