 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Phillies star Jimmy Rollins tripled against Washington on Sunday and joined Curtis Granderson, Willie Mays and Frank ``Wildfire'' Schulte as the only players in major league history with 20 stolen bases, 20 homers, 20 triples and 20 doubles.
With a standing-room only crowd chanting ``M-V-P!'' and the Phillies on the brink of clinching the NL East, Rollins tripled to right in the sixth inning to reach the milestone. The RBI triple gave the Phillies a 5-1 lead.
Granderson accomplished the feat this year for the Detroit Tigers. Rollins' 20 triples are the most in the NL since Lance Johnson hit 21 in 1996. He also set the Phillies single-season record, snapping a tie he held with Juan Samuel (1984).
Rollins started all 162 games for the NL East champs and had 88 extra-base hits. Alex Rodriguez is the only shortstop with more extra-base hits in one season (91 in 1996).
