Montgomery 3, Jacksonville 0. Jeff Niemann is back with his best start ever as a professional and an excellent sign that he is returning from his year-long absence. Last night, Niemann worked 7 innings of 1-hit ball, giving up no runs and 2 walks. He struck out 3. Niemann was perfect through 5 before giving up a walk in the 6th. His only hit came on a lead-off single in the 7th.
