Angels starter Garrett Richards was off to a great outing, with a no-hitter though five innings. But somehow he just lost his control and the Houston Astros struck big on him and the bullpen. The Halos were able to get something started in the ninth inning, and scored twice, but it wasn’t enough as the ‘Stros took the second one by the final of 6-3 and the division lead. Here is the recap:
