NEW YORK (WALA) - Yankee's Captain Derek Jeter need only two hits to reach the 3,000 hit milestone going into Saturday's game. Not only did Jeter get the two hits, he went 5 for 5 at the plate, homered for number 3,000 in the third inning, and drove in the winning run in the eighth to give the Yankees a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Jeter was swarmed by teammates at home plate after rounding the bases followed by a curtain call to a sell-out crowd which included his parents and numerous members of his family as well as friends.
Jeter is the 28th player to reach the 3,000 hit plateau. He now sits at 27 on the MLB career hit list as he surpassed Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente (3,000) in the process. Jeter also has the chance to pass Al Kaline (3,007) and Wade Boggs (3,010) by the end of next week and move ahead of former Astro great Craig Biggio (3,060) by the end the season at number 20.
MLB outcast Pete Rose leads the all-time list with 4,256 hits.
