April 23, 1980

The Phils' offense remained inconsistent, scoring just two runs after the fourteen-run onslaught of Mets' pitching the game before.  To make matters worse, Larry Christenson was lifted after one inning due to injury.  Though the Phils' bullpen put up a valiant fight, they could come up short in this game.
