HOUSTON -- Garrett Richards followed the worst start of his career with one of his best. Wholesale Lakers Jerseys . He also a truly special inning, striking out the side on just nine pitches. Richards fanned nine to match his major league best, helping the Los Angeles Angels snap a season-worst four-game skid with a 4-0 win over Houston Astros on Wednesday night. Richards (5-2) bounced back from a terrible outing in his last start when he allowed five runs while getting only two outs. It was the shortest non-injury-related start of his career. "I definitely came into this game with a little chip on my shoulder," Richards said. "Last one was embarrassing. And thats not the pitcher I am." In the second, he joined Nolan Ryan as the only Angels pitchers to strike out the side on nine pitches. Ryan did it in 1972. "That was my guy growing up," Richards said. "Its cool. Its cool to be put in a group with a guy like that. I didnt even realize it until after the game." Richards gave up four hits and walked none in eight innings. Of his first 35 pitches, 32 were strikes. Joe Smith struck out one in a hitless ninth. Erick Aybar had two doubles and an RBI and David Freese doubled and drove in a run for the Angels. Jarred Cosart (4-5) allowed eight hits and three runs and tied a career-high with eight strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. Dexter Fowler had two hits for the Astros, but no one else could get anything going against Richards. Heralded prospect Jon Singleton went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in his second major league game after homering in his debut on Tuesday night. Fowlers ground-rule double led things off for the Astros, but Richards retired the next eight batters. Fowler singled with two outs in the third but Jose Altuve grounded into a force out to end the inning. Richard located his pitches well all night, but his control was impeccable early in the game. "Garrett was ready," manager Mike Scioscia said. "I dont know if it was based on the last outing which was obviously tough for him. He just showed great command with all his pitches." Houston manager Bo Porter was impressed. "(He) had electric stuff tonight from the very first pitch until he left the game in the eighth," he said. "He was throwing 95, 96 late in the game with a wipeout slider. That is what you call dominating stuff." Freese doubled with one out in the fifth and C.J. Cron put the Angels on top 1-0 with his RBI single with two outs. Aybar hit a one-out double in the sixth before Albert Pujols drew a walk. Howie Kendrick and Freese hit back to back singles with two outs to stretch the lead to 3-0. The Angels didnt get a hit until Albert Pujols singled with two outs in the fourth inning, but Cosart struck out Josh Hamilton for the third out. Hamilton played centre field on Wednesday night in his second game back from the disabled list with star Mike Trout out again with back problems. Collin Cowgill entered the game as a pinch-runner in the eighth and took over in centre field and Hamilton moved to left. Cowgill preserved the shutout by sprinting to make a catch on the track just before Tals Hill in centre field on a fly ball hit by George Springer for the last out in the eighth. Trout had an MRI on Wednesday and said it didnt reveal any damage. He has some inflammation in the middle of his back on the left side and hopes to return to the lineup on Thursday. Trout missed two games with stiffness in his upper back before starting Tuesday night in Houston. He left that game in the second inning because of his back problem. He said that he feels a lot better on Wednesday than he did when he left the game on Tuesday night. "If I dont feel it at all, Im going to play," he said. "If I feel it a little bit, I should just be smart about it." NOTES: The series wraps up on Thursday when Los Angeles LHP Tyler Skaggs opposes Brad Peacock. ... Houston SS Jonathan Villar was out of the lineup on Wednesday after being hit on the right elbow by a pitch the night before. X-rays were negative and he is day to day. Lakers Jerseys China . -- Conor Casey scored two goals, his first of the season, as the Philadelphia Union beat Chivas USA 3-0 on Saturday night. Lakers Jerseys 2020 . The former Toronto FC designated player played three of his 15 professional seasons with the team. https://www.lakersjerseycheap.com/ .Y. - DeMarre Carroll felt as though he couldnt miss in the second quarter as he outscored the Brooklyn Nets 14-13 all by himself.A very sobering realization faced the traveling Vancouver Whitecaps supporters as they left Providence Park on Saturday - their team probably isnt good enough to make the playoffs this season. Mathematics would suggest otherwise, but if the benchmark comparison and the prime adversary is the Portland Timbers, then back-to-back 3-0 losses should say everything about the Caps chances. Despite showing energy and endeavour in the first 20 minutes, there was, once again, no final product. And then, when Carl Robinsons young team lost concentration in the 28th-minute, a series of three mistakes turned into a Diego Valeri goal and the sinking feeling that there was no coming back. All those well publicized preseason fears have fully manifested themselves. Who would score the goals, and where was the MLS experience? The freewheeling open games prior to the World Cup may have yielded goals chances and points, but once the dog days of summer rolled around when games became more meaningful, the Whitecaps simply dont have enough savvy to navigate a tough conference with teams boasting far more MLS moxy. A look at the standings says everything you need to know about the value of MLS experience. The teams at the top added bona fide veterans of the North American game. Seattle brought in Chad Marshall, Kenny Cooper, Chad Barrett, Stefan Frei and Marco Pappa. DC United acquired Eddie Johnson, Bobby Boswell, Jeff Parke and Chris Rolfe. The triumphant Timbers have more experience among Will Johnson, Donovan Ricketts and Diego Chara than the entirety of the Whitecaps team on Saturday. A familiarity of the MLS game does matter. It reflects how one prepares and trains and why concentration over 90-minute stretches in a grueling marathon decides the winner. Whitecaps fans arent going to want to hear this, but the only way you get those meaningful minutes is either by acquiring it or being patient. Bruce Arena gathered those players when he took over the last place Los Angeles Galaxy in 2008. Lakers Jerseys 2019. Peter Vermes built it when becoming interm coach of the Kansas City Wizards in 2009. And Jason Kreis/Garth Lagerwey pretty much set the standard of club building when Real Salt Lake entered the league in 2005. When the Seattle Sounders joined MLS, they hired Sigi Schmidt for his understanding of the league. He quickly dotted his lineup with pros like Marshall, Brad Evans and Nathan Sturgis. At the opposite end of the club-building spectrum are the two teams that met on Sunday, Toronto FC and Chivas USA - two franchises that have been plagued by lack of vision, constant change, and no stable, long-term servants to act as a core to build around. As difficult as it is for fans to accept, this was, in fact, year one of a rebuild. Nobody wants to hear that, but its the cold hard truth. After four years in the league, supporters will have expected more growth by this point. But now is not the time for the club to worry about what the media and the fans are saying. They need to stick to a plan. That means staying the course with a promising residency program which will hopefully supplant the diminishing quality of the US College draft. It also means scouring the globe for hungry young players with value and upside. But ultimately, it means identifying within the current squad, a group of players to build around over the long term. Because until that group amasses some significant game equity, well continue to see lapses like the ones on Saturday. That job falls on the shoulders of Carl Robinson. A full year of working with his group should provide all the data he needs to move forward. Many dejected supporters Saturday wondered how the Whitecaps season could have gone south so quickly, but, perhaps, the better question is how did they even manage to get as far as they have, given the age and ability of a team lacking so much MLS wisdom?
