September 12, 1980 - Game 2 - St. Louis 5, Phillies 0

The offenses were silent for the vast majority of this game, until the 11th inning was reached. The Phils' bats remained silent. However, the Cardinals' bats did not. After Nino Espinosa pitched seven shutout innings and Tug McGraw three more, Phils' relievers Ron Reed, Randy Lerch and Warren Brusstar were knocked around for five runs and four hits, aided by a costly Mike Schmidt error. Schmitty was the lone Phil to get two hits, and there were only four more besides as the Phils would go scoreless for the game. The sweep of the doubleheader by the Cards put the Phillies two full games behind the Expos in the NL East.
