Jimmy Rollins added another milestone to his Phillies' career once Tuesday's game became official after five innings. Rollins played in his 1,731st game, breaking Larry Bowa's record for most games played at shortstop by a Phillie. But Rollins wasn't impressed with the record. "It just means that I've been here for a long time and played a lot of games," Rollins said. "That's about it, honestly. … That was never my plan (to play the most games). If you're going to be somewhere for a long time, and you're playing, you're going to accumulate a lot of games." Besides, Rollins has other goals in mind, such as passing Bowa's total for hits – Bowa had 2,191 while Rollins came into the game with 1,978.
