The Angels added a run in the third on a fielder’s choice grounder by Aybar, after Kendrick’s infield single and a drive to right-center by Cron that bounced out of center fielder Leonys Martin’s glove as he ran full-speed toward the warning track.

NOTES: After walking his first batter of the game, Richards struck out Andrus, Adrian Beltre and Fielder in succession. Fielder fanned on a ball in the dirt, one pitch after Choo stole second with an enormous jump before Richards came out of the stretch in his delivery. … Beltre, still looking for his first home run, has played eight games since coming off the DL.
