HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- Garrett Richards stuck out nine to match his career best over eight excellent innings and helped the Los Angeles Angels snap a season-long four-game skid with a 4-0 win over Houston Astros on Wednesday night.

Richards (5-2) bounced back from a terrible outing in his last start when he allowed five runs while getting only two outs. It was the shortest non-injury-related start of his career.

Joe Smith struck out one in a hitless ninth to complete the four-hitter for the Angels.

Erick Aybar had two doubles and an RBI and David Freese doubled and drove in a run for the Angels.

Houston starter Jarred Cosart (4-5) allowed eight hits and three runs and tied a career-high with eight strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings.
