Montgomery, Pallante, and Gallegos have outstanding outings

It’s easy to see the Cardinals won the trade between them and the New York Yankees that swapped Harrison Bader for Jordan Montgomery.

Montgomery won his third game since joining the Cardinals. He is now 6-3 on the season. He pitched 5.2 innings, giving up six hits and one earned run. He struck out eight batters and induced 11 swings and misses.

Montgomery has been impressive since joining the Cardinals. It is great to see.

Andre Pallante entered the game to get the last out of the sixth inning. He earned his sixth hold of the season, pitching 2.1 innings. He struck out two batters and induced two swings and misses.

Giovanny Gallegos pitched an inning, giving up a hit and a walk while striking out one and inducing three swings and misses.
