Richards (3-11) took the loss Wednesday as the Marlins were downed 3-2 by the Padres, giving up three runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings while striking out five. The right-hander wasn't very efficient, throwing 54 of 90 pitches for strikes as he lost his fourth straight start and sixth straight decision. Richards will carry a 4.24 ERA and 93:48 K:BB through 104 innings into his next outing Monday, on the road against the White Sox.
Richards (3-10) gave up four runs on six hits and five walks while striking out five through five innings to take the loss against the Braves on Sunday. Richards allowed too many baserunners to be effective, and a two-run home run in the third inning was devastating to his stat line. The right-hander struggled as the first half came to a close, posting a 6.79 ERA and a 20:12 K:BB in his last five starts. Richards has a 3-10 record and a 4.18 ERA through 18 starts heading into the All-Star break.
Richards (3-9) gave up three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings to take the loss against the Phillies on Sunday. It was another disappointing outing for Richards. The right-hander has given up nine earned runs in his last two starts and has seen his ERA rise to 4.02 for the season. The 26-year-old has struggled in June, posting a 1-4 record and a 4.47 ERA over six starts. Richards will get his next start Saturday against the Braves at SunTrust Park.
Richards (3-8) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up six runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings while striking out three as the Marlins were downed 6-1 by the Nationals. The right-hander was tagged for three runs in the third inning and then three more in the fourth, putting Miami in a hole it wasn't going to climb out of against a locked-in Max Scherzer. Richards will take a 3.94 ERA and 80:38 K:BB through 89 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against the Phillies.
Richards recorded eight strikeouts and gave up one run on four hits and three walks through 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Wednesday. RIchards didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning and seemed to be dominating until he unraveled in the sixth by allowing three hits and his only run. This was a nice rebound performance after allowing five runs in his last start. The 26-year old has a 3-7 record with a 3.54 ERA through 15 starts this season. Richards will make his next start Tuesday against the Nationals.
