Nevada Dusters record: 55-21
The Dusters had two days off before  their second series against Philadelphia. Game 1 did not begin in promising fashion, with starter Dave McNally walking the first two batters he faced, setting the stage for a double by Wes Covington and a single off Clay Dalrymple's bat, both of which scored a run. Lee Maye's two-run homer in the 3rd tied the game. McNally settled into a groove and gave up just one more hit in five innings, so there were some raised eyebrows when Ben Naylor had George Banks pinch hit for McNally in the 7th with nobody on. The move paid off, as Banks singled and then scored on an Albie Pearson two-bagger to give Nevada the lead. In the 8th Billy Williams led off with a triple, but it was for naught, as Philadelphia reliever Jack Baldschun struck out the next three Dusters. In the 9th, though, Johnny Roseboro walked, pinch hitter Gary Kolb singled, and Pearson reached on a Phillies error to load the bases. Dallas Green took the hill for Philadelphia and walked Williams to make it 4-2 Nevada. All that remained was for Hal Reniff to work his magic in the Phillies 9th. It was three up, three down, and Reniff had his 28th save. McNally (6.0 ip, 3 h, 4 bb, 2 r, 2er, 7 k) earned his seventh win of the season. Williams was 2-for-4, with a double and a triple.

Game 2 was another hard-fought contest between the two teams, with the issue in doubt until the very end. With Steve Barber and Dennis Bennett dueling, the game was scoreless through four, even though the Dusters had two men on in their half of the 3rd while the Phillies loaded the bases in their half. In the Nevada 5th J.C. Martin, starting behind the plate instead of Johnny Roseboro, smacked a solo homer into center. Martin would go 2-for-2 on the day and draw three intentional walks. Johnny Callison, Tony Gonzalez and Clay Dalrymple all hit doubles in the Phillies 6th to take a 2-1 lead. Jim Fregosi led off the Nevada 7th with a double, Martin got one of his passes, and George Banks, pinch hitting for Barber, hit a single. But Fregosi had been caught trying to steal third, so when Albie Pearson hit a double down the first base line only one run scored, and the game was knotted at 2. Against Ryne Duren in the 8th the Dusters loaded the bases to no avail. In the 10th Fregosi led off with a single -- and was thrown out going for an extra base. Martin walked again and pinch hitter Gary Kolb jacked a two-run dinger over the center field wall for a 4-2 Nevada lead. Gonzalez singled off Hal Reniff in the bottom of the 10th, Dan Demeter walked, and Dalrymple hit an RBI single to narrow the deficit to 1, but Frank Torre grounded to third and the game was over.

As usual, Ben Naylor rested some of the regulars in Game 3, putting Gary Kolb in center field and Bob Saverine at second base. Nevada scored first; Jim Fregosi led off the 4th with a single, Saverine walked, and Johnny Roseboro was hit by a pitch to load the bases. When starter Joe Horlen flied out to left, Fregosi tagged up at third and scored. The Phillies didn't get a hit until their half of the 4th, a single by Tony Gonzalez. Their second hit was a two-run homer cranked over the right field fence by Don Demeter. The Dusters came roaring back in the 5th. Donn Clendenon hit a solo homer, and Philadelphia starter Ray Culp walked Billy Williams and Lee Maye. Williams scored when Phillies second baseman Tony Taylor threw the ball away trying to get Saverine out at first, and Maye scored on a Clete Boyer grounder, making it 4-2 Nevada. The Phillies tied it on a two-run single through the right side by Johnny Callison. Reliever Claude Raymond took the hill in the 8th and gave up a pair of singles before a rare fielding error by Boyer on a Johnny Callison grounder loaded the bases. Then Raymond walked Earl Averill on a close call, and the Phillies were up 5-4. Naylor argued the call so vehemently that he was ejected from the game. The Dusters got two men on in the 9th but couldn't capitalize, and the Phillies won, avoiding a sweep. In the back-to-back series, the two teams had split the games, three to three.
