July 5, 1980 - St. Louis 6, Phillies 1

Larry Bowa applies the tag late as Barry Bonds slides.
Larry Bowa applies the tag late as Barry Bonds slides.

Another game, another loss for hard-luck Randy Lerch, the Phils' pitcher who was snakebit pretty much all of 1980. He went five today, but gave up five earned runs and took his 11th loss of the season. At this point of the 1980 season, he was 3-11 with a 4.40 ERA. Unfortuantely, the ERA would only go up from this point forward. The lone Phils run was scored in the top of the first inning, when Rose knocked in Lonnie Smith with a sacrifice fly after Smith reached on an error by Cards shortstop Garry Templeton. It would be the only blemish on the pitching line of ancient ex-Phil Jim Kaat. The 41-year-old would go the distance for St. Louis, giving up six hits in earning his third win of the season.
