August 17, 1980 - Game 1 - Phillies 9, New York 4

Steve Carlton may not have had his best stuff, but he gutted through a performance that led to a complete game for him, and another huge victory for the Phillies. Carlton went the distance, giving up four runs (only two earned) on ten hits, but walking none and striking out eleven Mats batters. Home runs were hit by Bake McBride (7), Garry Maddox (8), and Lonnie Smith (3) Smith and McBride each had three hits on the game. Mets starter Ray Burris gave up 8 runs in 4-2/3 innings to take the loss. With the Pirates and Expos splitting their double-header , this win put the Phils within four games of the division lead.
