September 23, 1980

Bob Walk was less than stellar, failing to get out of the second inning against the St. Louis Cardinals.  The Phils tried late to catch up, but they has spotted St. Louis too much of a lead and fell 6-3, dropping back into second place. For St. Louis, Al Olmstead earned the only win of his major league career.  Mike Schmidt homered for the fourth consecutive game, hitting his 43rd in the ninth.
