Richards threw 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Thursday, giving up one earned run on eight hits, striking out six and walking one as the Marlins won 5-2. Richards turned in a solid effort but had to settle for the no-decision after departing the contest with the Marlins down 1-0 before they staged a ninth-inning comeback and got the victory. The right-hander owns a 4.14 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP and a 50:27 K:BB through 54.1 innings.
Richards (1-5) picked up the win in Friday's 8-6 victory over the Mets, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 6.1 innings while striking out four. The right-hander wasn't particularly sharp, throwing 55 of 88 pitches for strikes and serving up two homers, but an uncharacteristic burst of offense from Miami's bats finally got Richards in the win column. He'll take a 4.44 ERA and 44:26 K:BB through 48.2 innings into his next start Thursday in Detroit.
Richards (0-5) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cubs. Richards was burned by two home runs that accounted for three of his four earned runs. He flashed decent skills by racking up 13 swinging strikes and 19 called strikes across 94 total pitches, but he was unable to translate that to a strong overall outing. In order to get better results, he'll have to both limit homers and walks, as he has surrendered 4.90 BB/9 and 1.50 HR/9 across 42.1 innings this season. He'll look to get on the right track in his next start, likely to come Wednesday against Tampa Bay.
Richards allowed two hits and three walks over 4.1 shutout innings during Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Braves. He struck out three and didn't factor in the decision. Richards needed 90 pitches to get through 4.1 innings so he couldn't qualify for the victory, but Miami's bullpen ended up blowing the lead regardless. The 25-year-old has failed to complete five innings in three of his last four starts. Richards has a 4.10 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 34:21 K:BB as he is still searching for his first victory of the season.
Richards (0-4) took the loss Saturday versus the Phillies by giving up five runs on six hits over four innings. He struck out three and walked two.

The 25-year-old, who is still looking for his first win despite four quality starts, has a 4.64 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 31:18 K:BB over 33 innings. Richards lines up to pitch next weekend against the Braves.
