September 14, 1980 - Phillies 8, Cardinals 4

After the tight game from the night before, this one was over early. Or so it seemed. The Phils got to a fast start against Silvio Martinez, battering the Cards starter for seven runs on eight hits, the big blow a three-run home for Bake McBride. Rookie Marty Bystrom still had his rookie magic, going seven strong, scoreless innings before giving way to new Phillie Sparky Lyle. Bystrom made the rigth decision to leave the game, as the Cardinals lit up Lyle for four runs (just two earned) on just three hits in his new setting. Lonnie Smith got two RBi for the Phillies, and Pete Rose, Luis Aguayo and Bystrom himself all knocked in a run. The only member of the Phils' starting lineup to not score a run or knock in a run was catcher Keith Moreland. The win allowed the Phils to keep pace with the Expos, who also won against Pittsburgh.
