Anges P Garrett Richards gives up 5 runs but gets win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) 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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) 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


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/10/2015) 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. 


Angels SP Garrett Richards goes seven strong in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards went seven innings strong in a no-decision against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Richards allowed a run-scoring single to Mike Zunino in the second inning for his only blemish of the evening. He yielded one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings of work in a 5-4 walk-off victory.

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
(4/30/2015) 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.


Angels SP Garrett Richards earns first win thanks to late rally


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) A late rally by the Angels lifted starting pitcher Garrett Richards to his first win of the season in his second start Friday against the Rangers. He allowed two runs on three hits and three walks, while striking out five in seven innings.

Richards (1-1) opened the game with two scoreless innings before Mitch Moreland had an RBI groundout in the third inning. Prince Fielder followed with a two-out RBI single to put Texas ahead 2-0.

Richards would settle down after the Fielder RBI hit to retire the next eight batters before Fielder had another single in the sixth inning. Richards getting on track allowed Los Angeles to take a 3-2 lead in the seventh, which ended up being the final score and giving the right-hander the win.

Richards is slated to make his next start Thursday at Oakland.


Garrett Richards erratic in return to mound for Angels


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) Angels starter Garrett Richards returned to the mound on Sunday for the first time since a knee injury last August ended his season, and was understandably rusty during five innings of work in a 4-3 loss to the Astros. 

Richards gave up four runs, three earned, while allowing five hits. He struck out four Astros but also walked four as only 60 of his 100 pitches were strikes. After the outing, he told MLB.com that he's ready to close the book on his recovery. 

"I'm done with rehab," Richards said. "I'm ready to go. That chapter of my career is over with. Now it's about winning ballgames. That's what I'm concerned about."

Richards was 13-4 last season before the injury, and his return figures to boost the Angels' rotation.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He excelled in his first full season as a starter, going 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA and 164:51 K:BB ratio in 168 2/3 innings in 2014.

Scioscia: Angels RHP Richards not set for Sunday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Word to those anticipating the 2015 debut Sunday for Angels right-hander Garrett Richards: Not so fast.

Richards, who is coming off knee surgery, did not exactly quell concerns in his rehab start Tuesday. He allowed five earned runs on seven hits in five innings for Triple-A Salt Lake. He did strike out five, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia is not ready to announce that Richards will start Sunday against the host Astros.

Scioscia told the Orange County Register that Richards will be evaluated in Houston before getting the nod. The hope is that he can pick up where he left off last year, when he emerged as an ace by winning 13 of 17 decisions, fanning 164 in 168 2/3 innings and compiling a sparkling 2.61 ERA.

"Stuff looked good," Scioscia told MLB.com about Richards' outing. "I think his command maybe wasn't as crisp at some points, but he moved well. I think he felt good. We'll evaluate him ... and see what the next step will be. ... It took him a lot of work to get through the five innings, 90-plus pitches. But his stamina was there."

Richards could return from the 15-day disabled list Sunday at Houston, barring any setbacks.

"This far along, I know in my heart that my leg is ready to go,” Richard said, per The Orange County Register. “Mentally is another thing. That’s something I’ll overcome with time.

“I don't think I need anymore rehab starts. I'm ready to go.”
