Next season, Pete Rose will get the significant record, the one he really wants. Tonight in Philadelphia, the Montreal Expos first baseman gets a smaller piece of history, also at Ty Cobb's expense.

Batting right-handed against former Phillies teammate Steve Carlton, Rose singles in the seventh inning. It's the 3,053rd single of Rose's career, breaking the all-time record he shared with Cobb for one day.

Rose's hit starts a three-run inning as the Expos beat the Phillies, 6-1.
