August 16, 1980 - Phillies 11, New York 6

Rookie Bob Walk had his ups and downs, but he pitched well enough to earn his ninth win of the season, and the Phils' third straight against the Mets. For the Phils, this was the fifth win in six games since the disastrous Pittsburgh series. Walk pitched 7-2/3 innings, giving up four runs (two earned) on nine hits and three walks. Kevin Saucier mopped up, giving up two earned runs in 1-1/3 innings. Hitting stars include Mike Schmidt, who went 3-for-4, homered and had two RBI and two runs scored; Garry Maddox, who went 4-for-5 with two runs and two RBI; Manny Trillo, who homered and scored and knocked in two runs; and Bob Boone, who went 2-for-5 with a run scored and three RBI for the game. Pete Rose, Lonnie Smith and Larry Bowa also had a pair of hits each in a team effort. Pittsburgh won again, so the Phils stayed in third, 4½ games behind the Pirates.
