PHILADELPHIA -- Jimmy Rollins had two RBIs in the leadoff spot Saturday, which put him in rare company.

It was his 160th multi-RBI game in the leadoff spot, which is tied with Pete Rose for third-most since 1900. Only Rickey Henderson (242) and Johnny Damon (173) have had more.

Rollins entered Sunday's series finale at Great American Ball Park needing just six more hits to become the franchise's all-time hits leader. He has 2,229 hits. Mike Schmidt holds the record with 2,234.
