August 21, 1980 - Phillies 9, San Diego 8

This was a really a tale of two games. The first game (inning 1-9) was a back-and-forth slugfest, with the batters pretty much having their way with the pitchers. By the end of three, the score was 5-4 Padres. The Padres has leads of 3-0, 5-2, and 6-4, while the Phils took the lead in the bottom of the seventh and held it until the top of the ninth, when the Padres tied the game off of Ron Reed. Bob Walk started for the Phillies, but lasted only two innings, giving up five hits, three walks and five runs before Randy Lerch took over in relief, giving up just one run in his six innings of work. Former Phil (traded for Carlton in '72) Rick Wise lasted six innings for San Diego, giving up two home runs to Mike Schmidt and five runs overall on nine hits and one walk. After the ninth inning, however, it became a pitching duel that lasted eight innings, zero after zero going on the scoreboard. Finally, a Mike Schmidt single and a Bake McBride triple off of Padre reliever Dennis Kinney, who pitched 9-1/3 innings in relief, in the 17th inning made a winning pitcher out of Kevin Saucier (his sixth on the season). Saucier had pitched five inings of shutout ball, talking over after Dickie Noles had pitched four scoreless relief innings. The win put the Phils in second place following a Montreal loss, and brought them to withing 1½ games of the division lead.
