May 4, 1980 - Los Angeles 12, Phillies 10

In a switch from the first two games of the series, this time it was the Dodgers who got out to the big early lead, jumping all over Phils starter Randy Lerch. By the top of the 6th inning, the Dodgers held a 9-0 lead. The Phils clawed back, and by the 9th inning had tied it up at 9-9. Unfortunately, the Dodgers would score three in the 9th off of Dickie Noles, and hold a late Phillies rally, and the Phils fell short 12-10, thereby handing Noles his first loss of the season. Greg Luzinski and Bob Boone both homered in a losing cause. In a side note, this turns out to be Scott Munninghoff's last game in the major leagues.
