Phillies Wallop Cards 8-3


Phila. 8, St. Louis 3


ST LOUIS (AP) – Garry Maddox and Manny Trillo drove in two runs apiece during a six-run ninth inning that carried Steve Carlton and the Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-3 victory over the St Louis Cardinals Wednesday. 


Carlton, 2-0, needed ninth-inning relief help from Dickie Noles when the Cardinals scored all their runs on Keith Hernandez’ double, a run-scoring single by Ted Simmons, Bobby Bonds’ triple and George Hendrick's single. 


Consecutive one-out doubles by Maddox, Mike Schmidt and Greg Luzinski gave the Phillies two runs off Bob Forsch, 0-1, in the fourth inning, then Schmidt and Luzinski singled off reliever Roy Thomas to begin what turned out to be the decisive ninth. 


Bob Boone followed with an RBI double and Trillo singled for two more runs. Don Hood replaced Thomas and, after Pete Rose was safe on shortstop Garry Templeton’s fielding error, Bake McBride drilled an RBI double and Maddox capped the burst with his two-run single. 


The victory was No. 150 in a Phillies’ uniform for Carlton, who had a four-hit shutout through eight innings. 


The victory improved Carlton's lifetime record against the Cards to 24-8.
