Phillies righthander David Buchanan not only was proud to see history Saturday, but to be part of it.

On the day Jimmy Rollins broke Mike Schmidt's team record with his 2,235th career hit, Buchanan was the winning pitcher in a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Citizens Bank Park.

Despite allowing three solo home runs, Buchanan went five innings, allowing the three runs on six hits.

"We had history, man, and it was an honor," Buchanan said.

Buchanan, who is 2-3 with a 5.97 ERA since being recalled from Lehigh Valley on May 24, said Rollins has helped him adjust to the big leagues.
"Me being a rookie coming in, every day he talks to me like I have been playing with him for 10 years," Buchanan said.

Rollins led off the fifth inning with a single off Cubs righthander Edwin Jackson for the milestone hit. He eventually scored on Domonic Brown's towering three-run homer to right field, increasing the Phillies' lead to 7-3.

On a day when the ball was carrying, Chase Utley drilled a Jackson fastball for a first-inning solo home run, his fifth of the season.

Mike Olt tied it with a line-drive homer to left field in the second. That was Olt's 10th home run, but only his 22d hit of the season.

Marlon Byrd started the Phillies' three-run second inning with a triple. He scored on Carlos Ruiz's one-out single. Reid Brignac then singled, putting runners at the corners.
