Angels P Richards leaves game

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards departed Wednesday's contest against the Red Sox in the bottom of the second inning.

Richards was running to cover first base on a ground ball hit by Boston's Brock Holt when his right knee buckled underneath him and he fell to the dirt. He was motionless on the field for several minutes, attended by team medical staff, then was taken away on a stretcher.

He departed trailing 2-0. Cory Rasmus took the mound to continue the inning.

Later reports stated Richards suffered a left knee patellar injury.
