A half-dozen quick stats that caught our attention recently ...

♦ Let me see if I got this straight ... The Spurs hadn't won a championship in six years, then Brett Brown leaves and they have the most dominating Finals (by point differential) ever.

Reid Brignac (.283) is now the second-leading hitter on the Phillies.

♦ Jimmy Rollins has hit in 12 straight games, the fourth hitting streak of his career of 12 games or more.

♦ Rollins has exactly one hit in each of those games, tieing a Phillies mark (since 1914) held by by Michael Young (2013) and Fred Luderus (1917). (Ted Sizemore holds the MLB record of 16.)

♦ From 2004-09, Ryan Howard hit .336 (51-152) with 15 home runs and 46 RBI in 42 games at Atlanta's Turner Field ... Since then, he is 22-112 (.196) with 5 homers and 23 RBI in 29 games there.

♦ The Phillies' five runs in the 13th inning Monday night were the most runs they have ever scored in the 13th inning.
