ANAHEIM – The Angels did not play the New York Yankees on Saturday with a full deck of cards. Shohei Ohtani had a sprained left ankle. Andrelton Simmons had a sore right forearm.

They had hope, briefly. Garrett Richards struck out Brett Gardner on four pitches to begin the game. Then over the next hour the Angels unraveled, allowing 10 runs before the second inning was over. The Yankees ultimately won 11-1 in front of an announced crowd of 44,649 whose loyalty was split more evenly than the final score.

Richards became the second pitcher in franchise history to allow nine runs while failing to complete two innings. Ramon Ortiz allowed nine runs in two-thirds of an inning against the Chicago White Sox in Sept. 2000. The Angels scored 12 runs that day. They still lost.

Richards (3-1) recorded just five outs Saturday, but he received little help.

Angels shortstop Zack Cozart had a chance to turn a routine ground ball into a forceout in the first inning. He somehow lost track of the ball, which trickled onto the outfield grass, and Aaron Judge scored from second base.

The hits kept coming. One run scored when catcher Martin Maldonado dropped a third strike. Five men crossed home plate in total – four runs were unearned – and the Yankees sent nine batters to the plate in the inning.

In the second inning, the Yankees sent 10 men to the plate.

Gardner walked on four pitches and scored on an RBI double by Judge. With one out, Richards walked Gary Sanchez, again on four pitches, and allowed a bases-clearing triple to Aaron Hicks. Down 8-0, Angels manager Mike Scioscia decided he had seen enough. Richards threw just 55 pitches but wasn’t fooling anyone.

Richards’ earned-run average was 3.46 when the day began. It rose to 4.88 after he allowed five earned runs in 1 2/3 innings. The right-hander walked three batters and struck out two.

Eduardo Paredes allowed three consecutive singles and two more runs before Gardner mercifully grounded out to end the second inning. The damage had been done, the veneer of suspense lifted long before the beer taps ran dry.

The Angels did not record a hit until Masahiro Tanaka (4-2) allowed a single to Mike Trout in the fourth inning. They didn’t score a run until Cozart hit a solo home run against Tanaka in the fifth.

If surmounting a 10-0 deficit was too much to ask, the Angels’ biggest challenge was rationing the game’s final 7-1/3 innings after the bullpen threw five innings the night before.

Paredes was charged with one run in 2-1/3 innings. Jose Alvarez threw a scoreless fifth inning. Noe Ramirez was charged with one run in 2-2/3 innings, when Blake Parker allowed an RBI single to the first batter he faced (Neil Walker) in the eighth inning. The Yankees didn’t score against Parker in the ninth.

Luis Valbuena had two of the Angels’ seven hits. Kole Calhoun’s ninth-inning single ended a 2-for-42 skid.

Judge (3 for 6) and Miguel Andujar (3 for 5) led the Yankees’ 14-hit attack.  Their 7-8-9 hitters combined to go 7-for-15 with two doubles.

The three-game series concludes Sunday.
