Garrett Richards Collapses At First Base With Apparent Leg Injury

Angels ace Garrett Richards appeared to injure his left knee while trying to cover first base on a ground ball tonight at Fenway. It's hard to get a great view of what exactly happened because the play never actually made it back to first after Pujols fielding it and throwing to second.
