Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards suffered a potentially serious leg injury while making a fielding play during this afternoon's game at Boston's Fenway Park. He laid grimacing on the ground near first base for about eight minutes, surrounded by teammates. Richards was then removed on a stretcher. The Angels called it an injury to Richards' left knee. The Angels have the best record in baseball and a one-game lead over Oakland, largely due to Richards' emergence as a star this season. His record of 13-4 with an ERA of 2.53 has Richards in the conversation for the Cy Young Award given to the top pitcher in each league. He had just 11 lifetime wins coming into this season.
