Greg Gross knocked in the winning run.

The Phils' bats suddenly came alive, scoring nine runs against Dodgers pitching. Dick Ruthven pitched a respectable six innings, giving up two runs. He was denied the win when Ron Reed gave up three runs in his two innings of pitching, blowing the save. The Phils came roaring back with a four-run eighth inning off of Charlie Hough, giving Reed his first win of the season. Pinch-hitter Greg Gross broke open the 8th inning tie, singling in Luzinski and Boone.  Both Schmidt and Luzinski homered. At this point of the season, both had five home runs.
