Yankees erupt in Subway Series!
The Yankees erupted in the seventh inning of the third game of the Subway Series to re-claim NY’s crown! The Yankees were down 3-1 and the Subway series was tied at (1-1) when Derek Jeter came thru with a game-tying bases-loaded single (3-3). A-Rod then hit the game-winning single, and the Yankees got bats together as a team. They are known for their power, but back-to-back-to-back bases loaded singles can do just as much damage. The Yankees went on to win 9-3 with that eight run seventh inning and Curtis Granderson’s solo HR in the first inning. Granderson is second in the league with HR’s with 15.
On a separate note, Jeter is only 25 hits from getting into the elite 3,000 hit club. He would become the first Yankee ever to accomplish this feat and the 28th all-time. Read the excerpt, courtesy espn:
“A lot of times it’s not how hard you hit them, it’s where you hit them,” Jeter said.
Jeter now has 2,975 hits for his career. If and when Jeter reaches 3,000, he will be the first player to do so in a Yankee uniform. He will also be the 28th member to get to 3,000.
“It’s still far away,” Jeter said. “I’m really not thinking about it now. It’s just more stay comfortable and the hits will come. And when you get a little closer [you can enjoy it] but now it’s still a long ways away.”
Jeter was asked to define “a little closer.”
“One or two [hits],” he said with a grin.
