Angels-Astros Preview

(AP) -- Nearly eight months after a severe knee injury ended the most successful season of Garrett Richards' career, the right-hander is set to again take a major league mound for the Los Angeles Angels.

He'll get the opportunity in Sunday's decisive series finale against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

After debuting in 2011 and spending the next two seasons bouncing between the starting rotation, bullpen and minors, Richards broke out in 2014. The Southern California native was 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA when during his 26th start Aug. 20 at Boston, he ruptured his left patellar tendon covering first base.
