Jimmy Rollins


Rollins went 3-for-5 with a career-high two homers, four RBIs and five runs for the Phillies in a 16-8 over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.


Rollins' 38-game hitting streak ended in Philadelphia's 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday afternoon. The Phillies' shortstop went 0-for-4 and didn't get a last chance to hit safely in the ninth, when he would have been the fifth batter of the inning. Rollins failed to get a hit in three at-bats against Cardinals starter Jason Marquis or in his final trip to the plate against reliever Josh Hancock.


Rollins extended his hitting streak to 37 games in Philadelphia's season opener, a 13-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. There was plenty of drama for Rollins, who waited until his final at-bat in the eighth inning to keep the streak alive. He doubled down the right-field line off Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright on a 3-0 pitch. Two innings earlier, Rollins knocked in a run with a sac fly.


In potentially the final game of the regular season, Rollins extended his franchise-record hitting streak to 36 games when singled in the fourth inning against the Nationals on Sunday. If the Phillies tie the Astros for the wild card, Rollins will get one more chance to extend his hitting streak in the regular season on Monday.


Rollins extended his franchise-record hitting streak to 35 games when he doubled off John Patterson in the first inning of Saturday's game between the Phillies and Washington Nationals.


Jimmy Rollins has extended his hitting streak to 34 games with a single to lead off the third inning during Friday night's game against Washington. Rollins is batting .387 (58-for-150) throughout his streak.


The streak has reached 33 games, as Rollins opened Philadelphia's 16-6 win over the New York Mets Wednesday with a single. He came around to score the game's first run, and the Phillies' shortstop scored three times by going 1-for-3 with three walks. He's a .378 hitter during his streak, with 17 doubles, 20 RBI, 13 steals and 31 runs scored.


For the first time in seven games, Rollins had just one hit on Tuesday night, but it was enough to give the Philadelphia shortstop the longest hitting streak in Phillies history. He has hit in 32 straight games since August 23, surpassing the 31-game mark established by Hall of Famer Ed Delahanty in 1899.


Rollins tied the Phillies' franchise record for longest hitting streak on Monday, collecting a double and home run against the New York Mets to extend his run to 31 games. The Philadelphia shortstop also has a streak of six multihit games in a row, and he's a .386 hitter with 17 doubles, 20 RBI, 13 steals and 28 runs scored during his hitting streak. Rollins tied the franchise mark set by Hall of Famer Ed Delahanty in 1899.


With a homer off Cincinnati lefthander Randy Kiesler to open Sunday's contest, Rollins collected the first of three hits on the day and extended his hitting streak to 30 games. His streak is one game shy of the Phillies' all-time longest run, a 31-gamer by Hall of Fame first baseman Ed Delahanty in 1899. Rollins is a .382 hitter during his streak, collecting 16 doubles, stealing 13 bases and scoring 27 runs.


With a single in the third inning of Saturday's game against the Cincinnati Reds, Rollins extended his hitting streak to 29 games, tying Johnny Damon for the longest hitting streak in the majors this season. Rollins has the longest hitting streak by a Phillies player since Ed Delahanty hit in 31 straight games back in 1899.


With a single in the first inning of Philadelphia's afternoon contest against Atlanta, Rollins has set a new modern-day franchise record by hitting safely in 27 straight games. The Phillies' shortstop has surpassed the pair of 26-game streaks generated by Chuck Klein in 1930.


Rollins singled home Philadelphia's only run in the ninth inning on Tuesday. Collecting one of the Phillies' three hits in a 4-1 loss to Atlanta, the Phils' shortstop extended his hitting streak to 25 games. In his 25-game run, which dates back to August 23, Rollins is 40-for-111 (.360) with 12 doubles, 15 RBI, 22 runs scored and 10 stolen bases.


Rollins went 1-for-4 and needed a seventh-inning triple to extend his hitting streak to 24 games on Sunday. Sunday's game marked the first time since Tuesday that the Phillies' shortstop didn't have a multihit game. Since Wednesday, Rollins has gone 12-for-24 (.500) with three doubles, a triple, a homer, seven RBI, three stolen bases and nine runs scored in five games.


By going 2-for-5 in Saturday's wild 10-2 come-from-behind Philadelphia win over the Florida Marlins on SSaturday, Rollins extended his hitting streak to 23 games. That is the longest streak by any National League player this season, and it's just three games shy of tying the franchise modern-day record of 26 games, set by Chuck Klein.


With his fifth three-hit game in his last eight contests, Rollins extended his hitting streak to 21 games on Thursday. The Phillies' shortstop collected a pair of doubles in Philadelphia's 6-4 loss to Atlanta, giving him six two-baggers in his last five contests. During his 21-game streak, Rollins is hitting .355 (33-for-93) with 11 doubles, two triples, eight RBI, 10 stolen bases and 15 runs scored.


With a pair of doubles and a single in Philadelphia's 12-4 win over Atlanta, Rollins has a 20-game hitting streak in which he's batted .341 (30-for-88). He's collected 11 doubles, stolen eight bases and scored 15 runs in his 20-game surge.


A sore hand has kept Rollins out of the Phillies' starting lineup the last two games and currently has him listed as day-to-day. The shortstop, who was used as a pinch-runner in Thursday's meeting with the Pittsburgh Pirates, hopes to be available for all three games of the team's weekend series against the Washington Nationals.


Rollins recorded five hits in six at-bats Thursday night, and he scored the winning run in the 13th inning of Philadelphia's 3-2 victory over Seattle. A sacrifice fly off the bat of Tomas Perez brought home Rollins, who scored twice in the game for the Phillies.


The Philadelphia Phillies and Rollins have come to terms on a five-year, $40 million contract extension. The deal includes a $5 million signing bonus. Philadelphia holds a club option for 2011 at $8.5 million with a $2 million buyout. If the Phillies exercise the option, the total value of the contract would increase to $47.5 million.
