Yankees' Derek Jeter Moves Into Tie for 6th on All-Time Hits List

Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career list with his 3,430th hit in the first inning.

This will be the final season for the 40-year-old Jeter, his 20th with the Yankees. Among his many career accomplishments, Jeter keeps climbing up the hits list.

Jeter may have a hard time moving up to the fifth spot, as he trails Tris Speaker by 84 hits.

"Big names. I mean really big names," manager Joe Girardi said. "It's been fun to watch him go through it this season."

Even more important for the Yankees was Jeter's hit helped lead the team to a 10-6 win over the New York Yankees. Despite dealing with a slew of injuries, the Yankees still find themselves in the Wild Card hunt in the American League.

They trail the Kansas City Royals by just .5 games for the final Wild Card spot heading into Saturday.
