August 3, 1980 - Phillies 8, Cincinnati 4

The Phils took the most advantage of their hits, scoring eight runs against Cincinnati pitchers Bruce Berenyi, Mario Soto and Dave Tomlin even though they only knocked seven hits on the afternoon. It didn't hurt that Reds pitching issued a total of nine walks on the day. Lonnie Smith went 2-for-4 with three stolen bases and three runs scored. Pete Rose knocked in two runs, scored one and went 3-for-4 on the day. Only Greg Gross and Bob Boone had hits other than by Smith and Rose. Boone's hit was a three-run double in the fifth inning, when the Phils exploded for six runs on just three hits and Reds pitchers issued four walks in the inning. Nino Espinosa was the beneficiary of the Phils' offensive gifts, and pitched a solid six innings to even his record at 2-2. Ron Reed pitche the final three innings and was awarded his seventh save.
