Jeter now 2nd on Yankees’ hits list behind Gehrig, passes Ruth

The pinstripes have been good to Derek Jeter, and he’s been good to them.  On Tuesday, he passed Babe Ruth on the Yankees’ all-time hits list with his single in the first inning.  That gave him second place, behind on the great Lou Gehrig who’s holding strong 2,721 hits.  Jeter sent an 0-2 pitch from Los Angeles Angels right-hander Ervin Santana into left field for his 2,519th hit.  He also had a single in the seventh for no. 2,520.

He’s got 10 more games to dish out 9 hits to tie Gehrig’s 1,260 hits at Yankee Stadium, enough reason to attend the final games even if they don’t make the playoffs.
