Philadelphia Phillies Infielder Does Something We Haven't Seen in Baseball in 30 Years

Philadelphia Phillies infielder Bryson Stott made some unique and rare baseball history on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday afternoon by a score of 8-5.

In the win, the Phillies got nine hits and benefited from seven walks, four of which came from infielder Bryson Stott.

Stott's statline put him in some unique baseball history, as he did something that hasn't been done in more than 30 years.

Per Baseball Reference on social media:

Bryson Stott is the 12th player in AL/NL history—and the first since Darren Lewis in 1991—to have 4 walks and 3 stolen bases in a game. 

The other players on the list include Rickey Henderson, Gerald Young, Gary Redus, Ozzie Smith, Willie Randolph, Lou Brock, Leon Wagner, Richie Asburn, Max Casey and Jimmy Sheckard.

The 25-year-old infielder has been a big contributor to the Phillies this year, hitting .304 with nine homers and 36 RBI. He's added 19 steals and a .784 OPS.

The former No. 14 overall pick in the draft out of UNLV is in his second year in the big leagues after debuting in 2022 and helping take the Phillies to the World Series.

Entering play on Monday, the Phillies are 53-46 and tied for second place in the National League East. They are also 0.5 games back of the final wild card spot, which is currently occupied by the San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Phillies will kick off a big series with the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night. The O's own the best record in the American League after taking three of four from the Rays this weekend.

First pitch is set for 6:40 p.m. ET.
