Clayton Richard has logged 1,230-plus innings in his major league career. The first eight he’d ever thrown at the Angels – the only team he had yet to face in his 10-year career before Monday – had at least a little to do with the 34-year-old’s effectiveness in a 6-3 loss in 10 innings if you ask...
