Clayton Richard hasn't gotten out of the fifth inning in four straight starts, but he's been far more effective at home, with a 3.76 ERA and four home runs allowed, compared to 6.28 and 12 on the road. Andrew Heaney has similar numbers -- he's 0-5 with a 5.30 ERA outside of Orange County. The Angels have been terrible against LHPs this year and the Padres' offense has actually been uncharacteristically decent lately, hitting .295 in August.
