FRIDAY’S QUICKIE QUIZ

FRIDAY’S SINGLE DIGITS

>>> Sean Rodriguez homered in the second inning Thursday night, becoming the third Phillies shortstop to homer this month (Jean Segura, Scott Kingery). We checked back to 1925, and they had never had three different shortstops homer in April before.

We really wished his solo homer had stood up as the only run of the game for this reason: We checked baseball-reference.com back all the way to 1883 and we believe the Phillies have never won a 1-0 game on a solo home run by a shortstop.

>>> In the six games since his five-hit game on April 19, Bryce Harper is 2-for-20 . . . In the six games before his five-hit game on April 19, Bryce Harper was 3-for-24.

>>> RIP to Celtics great John Havlicek, who on Nov. 13, 1977, passed Jerry West (Lakers) as the NBA’s all-time leading career scorer among those who played for only one franchise. It was a long time before he was passed atop that list by Michael Jordan (Bulls) in 1997, five years before Jordan would play for another franchise (Wizards).

Havlicek is currently fourth on that list:
