Phillies vs. Los Angeles- June 16, 1980

Hard-luck Randy Lerch pitched perhaps his best game of the season, but the Phils' bats could not come through in time for him to pick up the victory. The Phils did win, however, in a 12-inning pitching-dominated game when Manny Trillo doubled home Larry Bowa in the top of the inning. Lerch pitched 10 innings, giving up only two runs (both in the 3rd inning) on seven hits. Dodgers starter Jerry Reuss matched Lerch's 10 innings and two earned runs (both in the 4th inning). Mike Schmidt had three of the Phils' seven hits on the game, while Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey had three of the Dodgers' eight.

  • Phils' Record: 31-24
  • Place: 3rd place, 1½ games behind Montreal.
