The home town fans were very appreciative of the fine hitting performance provided by Vance Law. He clubbed a solo home run in the 1st inning, ripped a one-base hit scoring two baserunners in the 6th inning and smacked a single in the 7th inning. Montreal had 13 hits for the night while Philadelphia had 10.
Steve Carlton(7-4) was hit with the loss. He was knocked around pretty good, giving up 6 runs in 5 and 1/3 innings.
