Derek Jeter moves up on hits, runs scored lists

By tripling and coming around to score in the first inning of Thursday’s game against the A’s, Derek Jeter moved up one more notch on both the all-time hits and runs scored lists.

Jeter’s hit was his 3,056th, pushing him past Rickey Henderson into 21st place.  He’s already moved up seven places since reaching 3,000 last month, and he’ll slide up one more within a few days when he passes Craig Biggio with his 3,061st hit.  Further progress will likely have to wait until next year; Dave Winfield sits in 19th place with 3,110 hits.

The run scored was his 1,752nd, breaking a tie with Jimmie Foxx for, once again, 21st place.  He should pass Charlie Gehringer at 1,774 and move into 20th place later this year.

While Jeter is the current active leader in hits, he’s second in runs scored behind teammate Alex Rodriguez at 1,810.  A-Rod is in 17th place and should pass Carl Yastrzemski, Eddie Collins and Frank Robinson on the list with a healthy final five weeks.

    Only because he can’t move down right? :P

    He has hit quite well since coming off the DL. The rest seemed to revive him. Does he have any heroics planned for today? Phyllis did not make it out of the third inning. The Yankees are down by 7 to 1. Can the captain and the Yankees still pull out the win?

      The Yankees are making a close game out of it. They have sent Harden to the showers.

        The captain is letting someone else get the glory today. Martin’s second home run of the day was a Grand Slam. Did I mention that Martin was born in Toronto and that he is the catcher on my fantasy team?

    Yeah, he moved up on the list and his team is getting the shit kicked out of them. At this rate the Rays will probably overtake them. No pitching = no post season!

    I would like to publicly apologize to Jeter for deciding he was washed up and would never play this well again. He still has something left in the tank.

    More than we can say for Hughes today.

    Another hit for Jeter and a GS for Cano! Beep may’ve actually gotten his avg upto .300…

    The most frustrating thing about this season as a Yankees fan is that Jeter & Gardner can’t ever seem to get it together at the same time. Whenever one heats up, the other slumps. They could be New York’s answer to Elisbury & Pedroia if they could both hit a little more consistently.
