Jeter Doubles For 2,997, But Yankees Lose

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Derek Jeter doubled off the right field wall, moving within three notches of becoming the first player to reach 3,000 hits in a Yankees uniform.

But just like every other runner who reached base Wednesday night against Indians starter Justin Masterson, he was stranded on the paths.

Masterson (7-6) turned in a command performance, allowing just three hits and two walks in eight sparkling innings to lead Cleveland over New York, 5-3, in

the finale of a three-game series.

Jeter’s 2,997th hit came in the eighth inning and was his third since being activated off the disabled list Monday. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk.

The Yankees scored all three of their runs in the ninth inning before closer Chris Perez shut the door.
