Garrett Richards tosses a complete game shutout of the Dodgers Monday allowing five hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in the win.
It was Richards second complete game and first complete game shutout of his of his career. With the win the young righty improved to 12-4 on the season and snapped a two-game losing streak. Richards now owns a career Interleague ERA of 0.80, which is the best all-time among pitchers with at least 50 IP. His next start will be on Saturday against the visiting Red Sox.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The Indians recalled Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus Saturday.
The expected move was announced Thursday after the Tribe felt they needed to push Carlos Carrasco (head/jaw) back to Monday. Salazar was dominant in his one Triple-A start, and as Fantasy Alarm's Brad Costilo noted earlier in the week, Salazar was very solid in his final 12 starts [of 2014], limiting opposing hitters to a .255 average/.668 OPS while striking out 1/4 of the batters he faced.
