July 8, 1980 - All-Star Game - National 4, American 2

The 1980 Midsummer Classic was played in Los Angeles' Dodgers Stadium.
The 1980 Midsummer Classic was played in Los Angeles' Dodgers Stadium.

The 1980 All-Star Game was rather anit-climatic, at least as far as Phillies fans are concerned. Mike Schmidt was selected as the starter at third base, but a leg injury prevented him from playing in the game. Steve Carlton was on the pitching staff, but had pitched for the Phils the Sunday prior to the All-Star Game, and did not take the mound for the National League. The lone Phil to appear in the game was Pete Rose, who made a pinch-hitting cameo in the 6th inning, grounding into an inning-ending double-play. Nevertheless, the National League extended its winning streak to nine games, beating the American League 4-2 to continue their dominance in the midsummer classic.
