Derek Jeter went 3-for-4 on Monday to pass Carl Yastrzemski for seventh place all-time on the hits list.
Jeter finished tonight's game with 3,420 hits, officially leaving him 10 shy of Honus Wagner in sixth place at 3,430 (Baseball-reference has Wagner at 3,420, which is probably more accurate, but MLB uses Elias for its stats). Jeter also walked and stole a base tonight, making this one of his best games of the season (especially since he was facing Yu Darvish). It's his fifth three-hit game of the year.

Derek Jeter went 2-for-2 at the plate and scored a run Tuesday in his final All-Star Game.
Jeter doubled to right field to kick off the bottom of the first inning before scoring on a Mike Trout triple. He then had a bloop single to right field in the third inning before eventually being removed on defense in the fourth to a standing ovation. Jeter also nearly made a terrific play on defense to start off the game, making a diving stop on an Andrew McCutchen grounder before 'Cutch narrowly beat the throw at first. He could have easily been named MVP in a symbolic gesture, but it was probably even more symbolic to see Mike Trout win the award as a sort of passing of the torch to the new generation of players.

Derek Jeter finished 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored to push the Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Mariners on Thursday.
This was Jeter's last trip to Seattle -- where his career began in May 1995 -- and he made it count. He went 7-for-12 with two walks and four runs scored during the three-game series. On Wednesday, he had two steals, the first time he'd swiped multiple bases in a contest since Sept. 25, 2009 versus the Red Sox. That game left him with 351 steals, allowing Jeter to join Craig Biggio and Rickey Henderson as the only players with at least 3,000 hits, 250 homers and 350 steals, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Of course, he'd been one of the worst everyday players in baseball prior to this series. Even after it, Jeter is slashing a modest .271/.331/.320 with just one homer and 14 RBI over 225 at-bats.
