May 28, 1980

Randy Lerch finally got a little luck - and his first win of the season.  The Pirates were able to touch Lerch for ten hits over eight innings, but could only manage three runs.  For their part, the Phillies roughed up Don Robinson for five runs over four innings, including Mike Schmidt's 14th home run.
