More than an hour after the game, Jimmy Rollins was in the Phillies’ training room receiving treatment on his left foot.

The shortstop fouled an 0-1 pitch from Jason Hammel off of the foot in the second inning. Although he fell to the dirt in pain and spent several moments trying to walk it off, Rollins played the duration of the game at short stop.

X-rays on the foot – the official diagnosis is a contusion (bruise) – were negative. A Phillies spokesman said the team would provide any further update tomorrow.

"He fouled a ball off the in-step of his foot, and that was hurting him," manager Charlie Manuel said. "But he wanted to stay in the game."

Also, Charlie Manuel became the fourth Phillies manager in club history to win at least 500 games with the Phillies, joining Gene Mauch (646), Harry Wright (636) and Danny Ozark (594).

Ryan Howard went 0-for-3 with a walk and 3 strikeouts, ending his hitting streak at 11 games.
