June 28, 1980 - Game 1 - New York 2, Phillies 1

Dick Ruthven gave up one run in nine innings.
Dick Ruthven gave up one run in nine innings.

The Phils' bats continued to slumber as their pitching continued to perform. Dick Ruthven gave up only one run on eight hits over nine innings, but the Phils could also only score one run off of Mets' starter Ray Burris. The game went into extra innings, and it was the Mets who were finally able to break through in the 11th inning off Phils' reliever Ron Reed. To complicate the Phils' lack of punch, Mike Schmidt did not play in this game due to injury, and was replaced by John Vukovich, he of the .161 career batting average.  The lone run for the Phils was scored by Manny Trillo, who also had three hits in the game.  Trillo was knocked in by Garry Maddox in the third inning.
