Steve Carlton set a record for strikeouts by a left-handed pitcher.

The Phils took the final game of the five-game series against St. Louis behind a great offensive game by Manny Trillo and Garry Maddox and stellar pitching by none other than Lefty himself, Steve Carlton. Trillo doubled three times while going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Maddox doubled and homered (his 5th) in five at-bats, scoring three runs and driving in three as well. Carlton pitched eight strong innings, giving up a single run on seven hits while striking out seven, before he gave way to Ron Reed in the ninth. The Cardinals scored a pair off of Reed, but that was too little, too late and Carlton picked up his 14th win.
