July 26, 1980 - Phillies 6, Braves 3

After losing six of seven, the Phils turned to rookie Bob Walk to stop the bleeding. Walk pitched well before tiring in the eighth inning, giving up three runs on 10 hits in 7-2/3 innings in winning his seventh game in eight decisions. Manny Trillo was spectacular, going 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and three RBIs. Lonnie Smith and Pete Rose had two hits each, and each scored a run. Ron Reed pitched 1-1/3 innings of effective relief in notching his sixth save of the season. Coupled with a Pirates loss to San Francisco, and the Phils inched to within four games of first-place Pittsburgh.
