J-Roll one hit away from 2K

Posted: September 05, 2012

JIMMY ROLLINS' three-run homer in the fifth inning was his 1,999th career hit.

With his next hit, Rollins will join a trio of players who collected their 2,000th hit as a Phillie. All three are in the Hall of Fame.

Mike Schmidt is the team's all-time hit king, with 2,234. Richie Ashburn (2,217) and Ed Delahanty (2,207) are second and third, respectively, according to the Phillies.

When Rollins reaches 2,000, he will be the 30th switch- hitter in major league history to do so, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
