Jeter hits two milestones!
@SportsBata ..nuff said
Yankees’ Derek Jeter went 4-5 with two RBI’s and one run scored (in a losing effort to the Chi-Sox 9-6 last night); each at-bat became a milestone! #Jeter scorched a single (3,252) on the first pitch of the game to tie Nap Lajoie for 12th place on the all-time hits list! He hammered a single off the third baseman (Kevin Youkalis) glove three innings later to pass Nap Lajoie! #Jeter then homered (251) in the sixth inning, which put him into ninth place on the Yankees’ all-time HR list and the run scored (1845) put him ahead of Craig Biggio (13th place) on the all-time runs list! In the seventh inning, #Jeter wasn’t done and hit a double (3,255) to tie Eddie Murray for 11th place on the all-time hits list! #Jeter, 38, is having a breakout year: leading the league with 167 hits, and is third in the A.L in batting average (.324)!
“He’s in such great shape it’s ridiculous,” Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte, who caught Clemens’ workout, told the station.
“He’s the same guy he was before. He is nasty. His split is good. He still has life. He was throwing in the high 80s.” – nypost
Former #Yankee Roger Clemens ’The Rocket’ is starting a minor league bid on Saturday with the Independent League’s Sugar Land Skeeters! #Clemens, 50, worked out with the Skeeters on Monday and hit 87 mph on the radar gun!
