July 12, 1985: Padres (50-37) at Cardinals (50-34)

First baseman Jack Clark had 2 base hits and 2 RBI as the seemingly unstoppable St. Louis Cardinals defeated the ice-cold San Diego Padres by the score of 7 to 2 at BUSCH STADIUM. St. Louis came up with all the runs they needed in the 6th inning as they ripped San Diego for 7 runs on 8 hits. The key offensive moment was provided by Ivan Dejesus who made the home-town crowd a happy bunch when he doubled plating two runs. Overall St. Louis out-hit San Diego 12 to 9. 

The win went to Kurt Kepshire(4-7) who allowed 1 run in 6 innings. Ken Dayley got the save, his 2nd. Dave Dravecky(11-6) was the loser. He was unable to control the St. Louis offense and allowed 10 hits and 3 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings. 

St. Louis won for the 7th straight time. Dick Williams was upset but philosophical about the loss. 'Sometimes you run into a team that's on a roll. This was one of those times.'
