LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dodgers could be idle at Thursday's trade deadline, with general manager Ned Colletti saying the team isn't close to making any deals.

He said Wednesday night they have been actively looking for pitching, but has found there is not much available. Starters Josh Beckett and Dan Haren have struggled recently.

Colletti tamped down speculation that the Dodgers are trying to trade right fielder Matt Kemp.

Richards gave up four runs and six hits in seven innings, and the Los Angeles Angels lost to the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Despite giving up a two-run homer to Adam Jones in the first inning and two more runs in the fourth on opposite-...
