June 27, 1980 - New York 3, Phillies 2

Steve Carlton fell to 13-3 on the season.
Steve Carlton fell to 13-3 on the season.

The Phils' bats were still stuck in quickstand as the team and starter Steve Carlton fell to the lowly Mets 3-2. Carlton pitched decently, giving up three runs (all in the Mets' sixth) on eight hits while taking just his third loss of the season. However, on this night he was outpitched by the Mets' John Pacella, who gave up two runs on five hits in his seven innings of work. Pacella would win just two more games this year, and his final ERA was a bloated 5.14, so this was definitely out of the ordinary for him. Bob Boone did hit his fifth homerun in the seventh inning, one in which the Phils cut into the Mets' lead. However, the Phils' rally fell short.
