Jimmy Rollins hit a grand slam in the second inning of Monday's contest against the Texas Rangers.

The home run was the 200th of his career, making him only the 19th player in major league history with at least 400 doubles, 100 triples and 200 homers.

Monday's opening-day start for Rollins was his 14th with the Phillies, tying him with Cal Ripken Jr. for most consecutive opening-day starts with one franchise.

Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt holds the Phillies record for consecutive starts on opening day with 16 (1974-89). Larry Bowa started 12 openers in a row at shortstop.
