Espinosa made his first start of the year.

Nino Espinsoa, who had went 14-10 in 1979, made his first start of the 1980 season on this Independence Day and pitched extremely well, going eight scoreless innings and giving up only three hits. Unfortunately, the Phils could provide no fireworks for him, even though he pitched eight scoreless innings. The Phils, even with eight hits off of Bob Sykes, could score no runs, and the game went into extra innings as a scoreless tie. George Hendrick ended the game in the 10th inining with his 17th home run off of Kevin Saucier, who took his third loss of the season. With the loss, the Phils once again fell behind the Montreal Expos into second place.
