Texas A&M junior OF & RHP Braden Montgomery is among top tier of college prospects

Texas A&M junior outfielder and right-handed pitcher Braden Montgomery departed Stanford last year for College Station and fans in Aggieland are extremely grateful for that.

Montgomery hit two home runs during a 12-8 win against Auburn to clinch an SEC series victory on Friday night at Blue Bell Park, surpassing fellow outfielder, sophomore Jace LaViolette, for the lead in homers.

"It feels great to have another win in the column," Montgomery said postgame. "Obviously, I'm always going to have the playful noise back and forth with Jace. We'll see if he can answer back. I was just seeing the ball over the plate and seeing really good swings on off-speed pitches. I knew I wouldn't be getting as many fastballs as I would've liked so I just had to deal with what I got and see something over the plate."

Montgomery finished 3-for-4 versus the Tigers with a game-high 3 runs batted in, 2 HR, 1 double, 2 runs scored and 1 walk. The versatile junior is quickly establishing himself amongst the top tier of college baseball prospects.
