August 27, 1980 - Phillies 4, Los Angeles 3

Steve Carlton had his second chance at gaining his 20th victory of the season, and this time he did not fail. Carlton went eight strong innings, giving up three runs on eight hits, good enough for the Phils to escape the series with the Dodgers with at least one win. The Phils had little pop in the bats, the only extra base hit being a double by Pete Rose in the fifth that knocked in Steve Carlton to tie the game at two. Rose, who had three hits, was also the only Phil to have multiple hits against Bob Welch or Steve Howe. The Phils did bunch enough together to get the victory, helped by a Steve Garvey error that allowed Bake McBride to score and five walks by Welch. Tug McGraw breezed through the last inning to earn his 14th save. With the win, the Phils once again climbed to within 2½ games of first-place Pittsburgh.
