Signature Moment
Game 4 of the 2009 NLCS, with the Phillies down 4-3 and runners on 1st and 2nd with two-outs in the bottom of the 9th, Rollins ripped a walk-off double in the right-center field gap. The Phils took a 3-1 series lead and eventually went on to lose in the 2009 World Series.
It was game 5 of the 2008 World Series (part 2) with the game tied 3-3 and a runner on 2nd with two-outs in the top of the 7th. A ground ball was hit up the middle, and with a fast runner at the plate, Utley faked a throw home and got the base runner--trying to go from 2nd to home--at the plate for the third out of the inning.
Signature Quote
Rollins proclaimed the Phillies the "team to beat" in a January interview before the 2007 season.
