Phillies vs. St. Louis- August 7, 1980

The Phils still did not hit well, getting only four hits on the night. However, they made the most of the hits that they did manage to receive, scoring one more than the Cardinals to help Steve Carlton win his 17th game of the season. Carlton went just one batter short of a complete game, giving up two runs (one was unearned) and six hits through 8-2/3 innings. Tug McGraw retired that last batter (Ken Oberkfell) to earn his 11th save. The Phils got three of their four hits in the decisive fifth inning. Trillo doubled, Bowa singled, and Carlton singled to knock in the three Phillies runs. The win put the Phils back within three games of the division-leading Montreal Expos.

  • Phils' Record: 55-48
  • Place: 3rd Place, 3 games behind Montreal.
