Montgomery was the 49 SC alum to make it to the majors. "Obviously he's just a massive human being (6 feet 7, 282 pounds), but he's got that kind of power and he's figuring out how to use it".

Three straight hits to start off Diaz - though the first off the glove of first baseman Rickie Weeks - got the Yankees even. Mitchell relieved Montgomery and pitched 1.1 scoreless innings.

Former South Carolina pitcher Jordan Montgomery made his major league debut on Wednesday.

Montgomery exited with a runner on second and two outs in the fifth after striking out Evan Longoria.

Former South Carolina ace Jordan Montgomery allowed three runs - two earned - and struck out seven in 4.2 innings of work during his Major League Baseball debut for NY against Tampa Bay Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

Slugger Aaron Judge must become a major part of the offense if the New York Yankees are to contend in the American League East and he has been productive the last two days with a pair of homers and three RBIs.

"People are curious how far they can see Aaron Judge hit a ball", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Montgomery was a fourth round pick, the No. 122 overall selection, by the New York Yankees in the 2014 MLB Draft.

Cedeno faced two batters and did not record an out as he committed a throwing error and permitted a single to Ellsbury as the Yankees took a 4-3 lead.

After Judge's single against Diaz tied the score 3-3 in the sixth, the Yankees had runners at the corners and one out when Gardner batted for Pete Kozma and hit a comebacker. He bounced a hurried throw to first, and Gardner ran into Weeks.

Montgomery beat out Chad Green for the fifth spot in the Yankees' rotation. That in turn will bump back Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia's next start by a day each, which Girardi said he wanted to do after both pitchers had to work hard in their initial outings of the season.

With his parents, Raury and Jim, on hand after driving up from SC, the Sumter native threw 61 of 89 pitches for strikes - including 17 missed swings. After being sidelined by a sore right ankle and a stomach ailment, he was benched against a left-handed starter.

RHP Luis Severino (0-0) is slated to start Thursday's series finale for the Yankees and RHP Matt Andriese (0-0) for the Rays.
