Freese's homer in 7th helps Richards, Angels top Rangers 3-2

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) While trotting around the bases on his go-ahead homer, David Freese was as pumped up for teammate Garrett Richards as he was for himself.

Richards pitched seven effective innings for his first win since injuring his knee last year, but he wouldn't have won if not for Freese's clutch drive against rookie Keone Kela in the seventh inning of the Los Angeles Angels' 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

"It was nice to get the lead for G.Richards while he was technically available to get the `W.' That was huge," Freese said. "I was fired up, thinking about trying to get that `W' for him. As hitters, we think about the pitchers who are out there busting their tails when they're not getting enough runs."
