After coming out to a standing ovation, Derek Jeter went 0-for-2 Thursday in the first appearance of his farewell season.
Jeter, who announced his retirement earlier this month, played his scheduled five innings at shortstop before leaving the game against the Pirates. He grounded into a double play his first time up against sinkerballer Charlie Morton and grounded out to third versus left-hander Jeff Locke in his second plate appearance, but he ran well both times. Jeter was limited to 17 games by leg injuries last year after breaking his ankle in the 2012 postseason.
