Phillies vs. Cincinnati- July 23, 1980

Not a good series for the Phillies. Nino Espinosa suffers his second loss of the season as the Cincinnati Reds complete the sweep, winning 7-3. Espinosa went six innings, giving up four earned runs, three in the Reds' half of the fourth inning. Rookie Bruce Berenyi won his second (and it turned out to be the last) game of the season, pitching 7-1/3 strong innings. His only major blemish came courtesy of Mike Schmidt's 24th home run of the season in the Phils' third. The only other run the Phils scored was in the fourth, when Larry Bowa scored an unearned run when Lonnie Smith grounded into a double play. Schmidt had a single to go with his home run, and Larry Bowa and Greg Gross (hitting 5th???) each had two hits on the day. Pittsburgh also lost, so the Phils stayed four games in back of the frontrunning Pirates.

  • Phils' Record: 47-44
  • Place: 3rd Place, 4 games behind Pittsburgh.
