NL Standings and Team Stats
- Rollins' home runs in the Washington series put him past Willie Puddin' Head Jones for 12th on the Phillies all-time list, with 182. He needs 3 more to tie Johnny Callison for 11th at 185.
- Tonight's game against Arizona will be his 103rd this year, and will tie him with Larry Bowa for 3rd all-time on the Phillies, with 1,739.
- He needs to play 10 more games at Shortstop to tie Bowa for most in Phillies history at Short, at 1,730. (I don't have a 2012 Phillies Media Guide handy, but for some reason the 2011 Guide credited Bowa with only 1,667 games at Short with the Phils; BB-Ref, FG, and phillies.com all show 1,730).
- His next triple (6th) will tie him with Sam Thompson for 3rd on the Phillies list at 106.
- He needs 3 walks (39 total) to tie Darren Daulton for 9th on the Phillies with 607.
More on Rollins' assault on the Phillies record book in last week's milestones post.
- Utley's next Sacrifice Fly (2nd this year) will tie him with Pat Burrell for 9th on the Phillies all-time list, with 42.
- He needs 2 home runs (7 total) to tie Bobby Abreu for 9th on the Phillies' list at 195.
- Howard needs 5 extra base hits (11 for the year) to tie Cy Williams for 10th on the Phillies' list with 503.
- With 290 career home runs in 1,047 games, he needs 10 in his next 39 games in order to reach 300 in the fewest games in history, surpassing Ralph Kiner's record of 1,087. Howard was already the fastest to 100, 200, and 250. More detail in last week's milestones post.
- Pierre's steals on Tuesday and Wednesday allowed him to pass 19th century outfielder Tom Brown and 20th century wizard Ozzie Smith for 21st on the all-time list with 581. Next is another 19th century player, George Van Haltren, whom I've never heard of, at 583.
- He's higher on the Caught Stealing list, since CS's weren't tracked before 1951. Five more (9 total) will tie Bert Campaneris for 5th all-time at 199.
- Needs two saves (25 total) to tie Dan Quisenberry for 32nd all-time, at 244.
