Galvis, starting at second base to give Chase Utley the night off against a lefty starter, went 3 for 3 with a solo homer in the fifth, a double in the seventh and a safety squeeze bunt in the eighth to give the Phillies a much needed insurance run.
Meanwhile, Cliff Lee pitched through the eighth inning for the fourth time in his last six starts. This time Lee allowed four hits and a pair of runs (on two solo homers) with a walk and nine strikeouts. Over the last six games, Lee is 3-1 with a 2.25 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 44 innings.
But the caveat that got missed beneath the big nights of Galvis and Lee was Jimmy Rollins' sixth homer of the season. This one came in the sixth inning to tie the game at 2 and it also was Rollins' first homer since July 20 -- some 182 plate appearances since his last blast.
It also was the 199th home run of Rollins' career.
Put it this way ... in the history of Major League Baseball, there has been just one shortstop to hit 200 home runs, steal 400 bases and get 2,000 hits. With one more home run, Rollins joins Honus Wagner as the second.
Now think of it another way ... Barry Larkin finished his career with 198 homers, 2,340 hits and 379 stolen bases. Larkin also was the NL MVP of the 1995 season, got to the World Series in 1990 where the Reds upset the A's and was elected to the Hall of Fame on his third year of eligibility in 2012.
Rollins likely will finish his career with more hits than Larkin and he also was the MVP of the National League. Better yet, Rollins played shortstop for a team that won the NL East five years in a row and played in the World Series in back-to-back seasons.
Larkin hit for a higher batting average and had a better on-base percentage. But Rollins will probably end his career with a better slugging percentage and a higher defensive WAR. He also has four Gold Gloves to Larkin's three.
So here's the question: is Rollins a Hall-of-Famer?
Ponder that question and we'll leave you with the list of players to hit 200 homers, steal 400 bags and get 2,000 hits: Paul Molitor, Johnny Damon, Craig Biggio, Marquis Grissom, Roberto Alomar, Barry Bonds, Joe Morgan, Rickey Henderson and Wagner.
[Ed. Note: Sometimes you go to bed wondering, "How did a Deadball Era guy, especially one who retired in 1917, hit 200 home runs?" He didn't. The fact is Honus Wagner hit 101 homers and had 252 triples. Thus, he isn't a part of the 200/400/2000 club Jimmy Rollins is about to join. I regret the error.]
