The game paused for a moment as Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt, the man whose record Rollins had just broke, entered the field to congratulate the new hits leader.
The game would soon resume, and the Phillies would score three runs in the inning, as they went on to a 7-4 win over the Cubs.
The Phillies would respond, however, plating three runs in the bottom second to take a 4-1 lead.
Phillies pitcher David Buchanan would surrender a run to the Cubs in both the third and the fourth, as Chicago began to chip away at the Phillies' lead.
The Phillies would soon break the game wide open. Following Rollins' record-breaking single in the fifth, Marlon Byrd drew a walk before Domonic Brown cracked a three-run home run to put the Phillies ahead 7-3.
The Cubs would take one run back in the eighth, but would get no closer, as Phillies cruised to a 7-4 win.
Jimmy Rollins had received his wish. He broke the hit record in a Phillies win.
