Greg Luzinski scores a run in the 3rd inning.

Dan Larson's second 1980 start did not go as smoothly as the first. He only lasted a single inning, giving up six runs, though only two were earned as the Phils' defense let their starting pitcher down as Pete Rose made an error that ultimately allowed four unearned runs. Rick Reuschel pitched a complete game, even though he gave up six earned runs. That would be almost unheard of today. Bob Boone and Bake McBride each hit their third homer of the season in a losing cause. As Pittsburgh also lost, the Phils lost no ground. On a side note, the Red Sox released former Phils second baseman Ted Sizemore on this day.
