The Cardinals took the Phils to the woodshed in this game. Dick Ruthven was blasted for four earned runs and did not last the third inning. Soon-to-be-ex Phillies Scott Munninghoff and Lerrin LaGrow made cameo appearances in this game. Cardinal Bob Forsch pitched a masterpiece, giving up only one unearned run while getting the complete game victory, dropping the Phillies to fourth place.

 

Phils' Record: 6-8

 

Place: Tied for 4th with the Expos, 3 games behind the Pirates.
