Second baseman Dave Lopes and shortstop Bill Russell were both on second at the same time . . . but as fielders, not baserunncrs. And it so rattled pitcher Tommy John that he made a wide throw, setting the stage for a two-run Phila- delophia rally in the ninth inning that lifted the Phillies to a 3-2 triumph over Los Angeles.
