Countdown To Derek Jeter's 3,000th Hit: Jeter Now 11 Hits Away

Derek Jeter went 1-for-5 against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday night, an RBI double pushing his career hit total to 2,989. Jeter is just 11 hits away from becoming the first player to get 3,000 hits as a New York Yankee.

Jeter’s double came off Boston starter Tim Wakefield during a three-run Yankee fifth inning. The Yankee Captain had an opportunity in the sixth inning with the bases loaded and the Yankees trailing, 8-5, but banged into a double play.

Jeter has eight games left on the current Yankee homestand to get those 11 hits if he is to reach the 3,000-hit plateau at Yankee Stadium. At his current pace he would fall two hits short of 3,000 during the homestand.

The Yankees face Boston’s Josh Beckett tonight in the finale of their three-game series. After that the Cleveland Indians come to New York for four games and the Texas Rangers for three.
