Pittsburgh took it to Nino Espinosa and the Phillies this Sunday afternoon, winning the second game against the Phillies 7-3. Pitcher Don Robinson took matters into his own hands, smashing a two-run home run that would end up being the game-winning RBI. Espinosa pitched seven innings but gave up six earned runs and took his first loss of the season. Warren Brusstar made his 1980 season debut, pitching two innings and giving up one earned run. Pete Rose and Bake McBride doubled, Greg Gross tripled and Garry Maddox hit his sixth home run of the season, which was the balance of the Phils' offense on this long afternoon.
