Richards, however, pitched well in his previous three home starts this season, allowing 4 runs on 9 hits, while striking out twenty over 20 2/3 innings against the Rangers (3-2), the Mariners (5-4) and the Houston Astros on May 10 (3-1).
The right-hander, who went 6-1 with a 1.97 ERA in his previous ten starts at Angel Stadium, will make his first start versus San Diego.
Derek Norris is 2-for-3, with three walks against Richards, but Matt Kemp, Will Middlebrooks and Justin Upton are a combined 1-for-12.Melvin Upton Jr. is 1-for-2 with a walk, but he is injured.
The guests are still without Yonder Alonso (.333 BA, 1 HR, 10 RBI) and Wil Myers (.291 BA, 5 HR, 19 RBI), whose absence is obviously a problem for San Diego, as the Padres were limited to three or fewer runs in seven of their last eleven games.
The Angels lost 0-4 in the second game of this series yesterday, but won seven of their previous nine games at Angel Stadium.
The Padres will send to the mound Andrew Cashner (1-7 with a 2.89 ERA), who pitched well in his last start, allowing 5 hits and one unearned run over six innings in a 1-2 loss against the Dodgers last Friday.
On the other hand, the right-hander has received a total of just three runs of support in his previous four starts in May and is 2-6 with a 4.00 ERA in his previous twelve starts away from home.
Chris Iannetta is 1-for-2, with 1 RBI against him, while Albert Pujols is 1-for-3, with 1 RBI.
I think that Los Angeles will win the series finale with more than one run difference.
