Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York.
Garder...walk. Jeter...walk. Granderson...BOOM! 3-0 Yanks.
Rough start for Angels pitcher Garrett Richards in his Major League Debut. He went 5-innings and gave up 6-runs and took the loss in the Yankees 9-3 win.
I wouldn't worry too much about Richards if I were the Angels. The guy throws in the mid-90's, he has a smooth fluid motion and the 23-year old, a week ago, was pitching in AA.
The kid is going to be a quality big league pitcher. But not tonight. A rude welcome to the show but on the bright side, he's in the baseball encyclopedia forever.
