Montgomery has been a solid addition to the Yankees rotation and snapped a four-start winless streak by holding the Toronto Blue Jays scoreless on three hits in six innings on Saturday. Bundy has lost three of his last four decisions while pitching fairly well, and the 24-year-old is 6-4 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.13 WHIP overall.
He retired 17 of the final 18 hitters, set a career high with eight strikeouts and threw 94 pitches. Judge, Holliday and Sanchez had three hits each.
The New York Yankees bashed their way to a series win over the Boston Red Sox this week, ensuring themselves a position atop the American League East.
Steven Souza Jr., Mallex Smith, Logan Morrison, Tim Beckham and Corey Dickerson all homered for the Rays, who have hit four or more homers in a game six times this season.
Bundy was charged with three runs and five hits.
Bundy (6-5) opposed Montgomery for the second time in three starts and allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.
New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge hit the hardest ball of 2017 Saturday night when he blasted a 121.07 miles per hour solo shot to left in the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. Tanaka has dropped five straight starts and is 2-5 with an 8.50 ERA over his last seven.
CLEVELAND - David Holmberg allowed two runs in five innings for his first win in two years and Chicago defeated Cleveland. He struck out eight, walked two and gave up just two hits.
The Cubs had just three singles and lost their third straight. Seth Frankoff (0-1) took the loss in his major league debut. He has been sidelined since May 13 with rotator cuff inflammation in his left shoulder, but said he hasn't felt any discomfort since the day he went on the DL. Russell denied the allegation.
Texas took advantage of three errors and won for just the fourth time in 15 games. But he followed that up by permitting seven runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 10-4 loss at Baltimore on May 31. He had a shutout going until there were two outs in the seventh, when Chris Davis hit his 14th homer.
On the other side, well, the offense was reactive to start and became Aarons' Party as the night wore on.
