July 25, 1980 - Game 2 - Atlanta 3, Phillies 0

The Phils' bats were silent in game 2 of the July 25th double-header against the Braves. Atlanta starter Tommy Boggs went the distance to record a shutout, giving up 7 hits while also striking out 7 Phils batters. Phils' starter Don Larson pitched decently, giving up two earned runs on eight hits, but he still took his second loss of the season on the strength of a two-run Bruce Benedict single in the fourth inning, and future Phillie Gary Matthews' RBI single off Dickie Noles in the ninth. For Boggs, the win evened his record at 5-5, while Larson dropped to 0-4.
