August 20,1980 - San Diego 7, Phillies 5

The Phillies' six-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt in this game, thanks mostly to bad defense. The Phillies jumped all over Juan Eichelberger in the first inning, scoring five runs. However, that would be all the runs the Phils would get in the game. In the top of the fifth inning, errors by Larry Bowa and starting pitcher Nino Espinosa helped open the floodgates, with the Padres scoring six runs in the inning, of which four would be unearned. Espinosa lasted 4-2/3 innings, giving up seven runs, but just three were earned. He was relieved in turn by Kevin Saucier, Dickie Noles and Warren Brusstar, who kept San Diego in check, but the Philly offense could not turn it on again. Fortunately, the Pirates and Expos both lost, so the Phils did not lose any ground in the NL East race.
