August 9, 1980 - Pittsburgh 4, Phillies 1

For the second straight day, Pittsburgh dominated the Phillies, winning handily, 4-1. The Phils grabbed an early 1-0 lead thanks to Mike Schmidt's sacrifice fly that knocked in Lonnie Smith, but the Phils would be shut out the rest of the way. Meanwhile, Nino Espinosa gave up four runs and eleven hits through his seven innings of work, suffering his third loss of the season. Kevin Saucier and Dickie Noles pitched a scoreless inning each to keep it close, but the Phils would not get close again. Pittsburgh starter John Candelaria earned his eighth victory by pitching seven innings of one-run baseball, and Kent Tekulve earned his 16th save, pitching two hitless innings.
