May 2, 1980

The Phils' offense, so long lethargic, suddenly sprung to life against the Dodgers.  Their output was enough to support Dick Ruthven, who pitched well, and the bullpen, which struggled.  Even with a decent start by Ruthven, the Phils had to pull a comeback against the Dodgers' bullpen to win the game.
