Del Unser reached first on an error in the ninth.

Dick Ruthven pitched a good game, giving up only two runs in seven innings, but that was not good enough on this day as the Phils were shut out by Lynn McGlothen and the Cubs 2-0. The Phils managed only six hits against McGlothen in his eight innings of work, and Bruce Sutter pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 12th save.  The lone Phils hitter to enjoy success was Manny Trillo, who had two singles in three at-bats to go with a walk.
