Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees got two hits Friday night, surpassing Willie Mays for 10th on the all-time hits list. Jeter now has 3,285 hits. After the game, a 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays that kept the Yankees tied with the Baltimore Orioles for first palce in the American League East, Jeter typically wanted to talk about the team and not himself.
