August 13, 1980 - Chicago 2, Phillies 1

The Phils had a chance to sweep the Cubs and climb closer in the NL East race, but unfortunately the bats were left at the hotel on this Wednesday afternoon. Dick Ruthven pitched well for eight innings, but got into trouble in the 9th with the game tied at one, and Ron Reed could not get the Phils out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam, giving the winning sacrifice fly to former Phil Jerry Martin. Ruthven was charged with his eighth loss of the season despite going eight inning and giving up just two runs. The Phils could only manage one run, that one on a Mike Schmidt home run in the top of the ninth that tied the game at one going into the Cubs' half of the inning. Schmidt's round-tripper was his 30th of the season, and Schmidt was the only Phil to have a multi-hit game. Both the Expos and Pirates lost, keeping the Phils within five game of the lead.
