July 22, 1980 - Cincinnati 3, Phillies 2

The Phils' bats remained cold, and even Steve Carlton couldn't prevent the team from losing its fourth straight game. Carlton gave up three runs (two earned) in six innings-plus of work, while the Phils could squeak out only two runs off of winning pitcher Mario Soto. Bake McBride had a triple and three hits, while Bob Boone had a homerun and a single in four at-bats. With the loss, the Phils dropped to four games behind Pittsburgh.
