Arizona 5, Angels 2
AT THE PLATE:
ON THE MOUND: Garrett Richards was dominant for two innings, retiring six batters in a row and hitting 97 mph. But he fell behind on counts in the third and fourth innings and gave up five runs and eight hits, including Didi Gregorius' two-run double and Paul Goldschmidt's run-scoring double. "The first 20 pitches he threw were incredible," Manager Mike Scioscia said. "Then he lost his rhythm out of the stretch."
EXTRA BASES: Grant Green, whose chances of winning a utility spot will hinge on his ability to play shortstop and third base, fielded five grounders cleanly and threw to first base for outs from shortstop. … Utility candidate John McDonald made a spectacular backhand diving stop of a grounder behind the second base bag and flipped the ball with his glove hand to second for a force out in the ninth.
