. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Steve Carlton, beating his ex-teammates for the eighth time in 10 decisions over the past two seasons, scattered eight hits and singled home the deciding run in the seventh as the Phillies edged the Cardinals, 2-1, and took over first place in the East Division. Larry Bowa's bunt single, Greg Luzinski's single and a sacrifice fly by Tommy Hutton gave Philadelphia a 1-0 lead against loser Lynn McGlothen in fourth. Mike Anderson's double and Carlton's single made it 2-0 in the seventh.

The Cards loaded the bases in the eighth with none out, but got only one run on pinch-hitter Reggie Smith's single, a double by Lou Brock, an error and sacrifice fly by Luis Melendez before Ted Simmons hit into a double play. The Phillies also turned a double play in the ninth after St. Louis had put their first two runners aboard. [The Sporting News]
