Phils Reach First With Victory


by The Associated Press


Phillies 2, Expos 1: Mike Schmidt drove in both runs with a first-inning sacrifice fly and a homer in the sixth as Philadelphia beat Montreal.


Schmidt's 16th game-winning RBI of the season gave Philadelphia the jump in the weekend series between the Phillies and the Expos, who started the series tied for first.


Right-hander Dick Ruthven, 17-10, pitched 5-2/3 innings and gave up the Expos' only run before veteran left-handers Sparky Lyle and Tug McGraw relieved.
