Anges P Garrett Richards gives up 5 runs but gets win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards allowed five earned runs during Friday night's 12-5 win over the Red Sox.
Richards didn't have the best game on the mound but was a beneficiary of a ton of run support from the Angels' offense. The Angels scored nine of their 12 runs in the fifth inning. Richards went six innings and struck out one batter while walking two.
The five runs are the most Richards has allowed in a game this year. However, the win puts him at 4-2 for the season. He now holds a 2.98 ERA.
Richards' next start is projected for May 27 against the Padres.
Angels' Garrett Richards strikes out seven in loss Sunday

|(5/17/15) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards took a loss on Sunday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and one walk in 7 2/3 innings in his team's 3-0 defeat against the Orioles.
Richards (3-2) gave up just one run through seven innings, which came on a wild pitch in the fourth with a runner on third. He was then removed after giving up a two-out single in the eighth inning, and the runner would eventually score on a two-run double.
"Garrett's breaking ball is so late and sharp and when it's down it really kicks in a number of directions," manager Mike Scisocia said to the Orange County Register. "You have to battle. He's not an easy guy to catch. Carlos (Perez) did a good job on just about every one. Just one got away."
Richards owns a 2.29 ERA and 36:17 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Red Sox Friday.
Garrett Richards racks up 10 Ks in Angels victory

|(5/10/15) Angels starter Garrett Richards had another strong start Sunday, striking out 10 to power Los Angeles to a 3-1 triumph over the Astros.
Richards went 6 2/3 innings to improve to 3-1 on the season, allowing just one hit and one run during a dominant outing, as he lowered his ERA to 2.27. He carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing a two-out single. The only blemish on Richards' day was four walks, which sent his pitch count to 110, and a hit batsman that drove in the Astros' only run.
"Every inning, I'm worried about throwing quality strikes, getting ahead of guys and getting guys out," Richards said to MLB.com. "For me, the more simple, the better."
Richards, who is coming off a knee injury that caused him to miss the second half of last season, has won three of his last four outings, with the other being a no-decision. He has not allowed more than one run in his last three starts.

|(5/6/15) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards went seven innings strong in a no-decision against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Richards is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA over his last three starts. He will seek his third win of the season Sunday at home against the Astros.
Angels' Garrett Richards allows one run in win vs. A's
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards surrendered one earend run on four hits and three walks in six-plus innings while striking out five in his team's 6-5 win over the A's.
Richards (2-1) has walked at least three batters in each of his three starts, but he was able to record his second straight win and quality start Thursday. He held the A's scoreless through six innings then put a man on base in the seventh before being removed, with the runner coming around to score on a home run later in the inning.
Richards owns a 3.00 ERA and 14:10 K:BB ratio in 18 innings. His next start will come Tuesday against the Mariners.
|2014 summary: Garrett Richards always had the stuff of an ace and finally figured out what to do with it in 2014, revealing no discernible shortcoming in the five months he was healthy. His strikeout rate was up. His walk rate was down. His home run rate led all of baseball. In terms of Head-to-Head points per game, he was a top-10 starting pitcher, ranking up there with David Price and Max Scherzer, and the underlying numbers gave every reason to believe it was legitimate. But then ...|
Playing time status: Yes, then Richards tore the patellar tendon in his left knee covering first base in late August, ending his season and beginning a lengthy rehabilitation that could last as long as nine months. Early reports suggest it'll come closer to six, giving him a reasonable shot of being ready for the start of the Angels season, but the threat of him missing an extended period will certainly cause him to fall in drafts.
2015 outlook: Richards' dominance is easy to quantify. He had the fastest fastball of any starting pitcher in 2014, and because he keeps the ball on the ground and has overcome his past control issues, he doesn't leave much room for nasty surprises ... except injury, of course. The later your league waits to draft, the more accurately you can predict Richards' return, but he's not slipping past the middle rounds regardless.
