Phillies Milestones -- August 10, 2012

After the jump, a brief milestones update, including Friday night's game:

Jimmy Rollins
- Rollins needs to play 3 more games at Shortstop to tie Larry Bowa for most in Phillies history at Short, with 1,730.
- His next walk (39th this year) will tie Darren Daulton for 9th on the Phillies with 607.
- His next triple (6th) will tie him with Sam Thompson for 3rd on the Phillies list at 106.
- 2 more home runs (15 for the year) will tie him with Johnny Callison (185) for 11th in Phillies history.
- He needs 23 hits to reach 2,000, and barring injury he should get there some time in September.
More on Rollins' assault on the Phillies record book in a recent milestones post.

Chase Utley
- His next Sacrifice Fly (2nd this year) will tie him with Pat Burrell for 9th on the Phillies list, with 42.
- He needs 4 home runs to reach 200 for his career.

Ryan Howard
- Howard's HR on Wednesday was the 500th extra base hit of his career, and he needs 2 more (11 for the year) to tie Cy Williams for 10th on the Phillies' list with 503.
- With 292 career home runs in 1,054 games, he needs 8 in his next 32 games in order to reach 300 in the fewest games in history, surpassing Ralph Kiner's record of 1,087. He's had 6 in his first 27 games this year, so it's not going to be easy. Howard was already the fastest to 100, 200, and 250. More detail in this milestones post.

Juan Pierre
- His next steal (29th) will tie 19th century outfielder George Van Haltren for 20th all-time, with 583.
- He needs four more steals to reach #19 Maury Wills at 586.

Jonathan Papelbon
- With his 25th save tonight, he tied Dan Quisenberry for 32nd all-time, with 244. Next is Dave Righetti at 252.
