New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter passed Babe Ruth on the all-time hits list with an RBI single in the 2nd inning against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday.
The hit was No. 2,874 for Jeter, passing The Babe for 39th place on the all-time hits list. Jeter finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBIs and now needs just two hits to pass Mel Ott (2,876) and six to pass Frankie Frisch (2,880).
Jeter passed Lou Gehrig for the most hits in franchise history last September. Ruth had 302 hits in six years with the Red Sox and 13 in 28 games with the Boston Braves. Jeter has collected all of his 2,875 career hits with the Yankees. With 125 more, Jeter will be the first player in franchise history to reach the 3,000-hit plateau.
The Yankees won 7-2 against their archrivals, giving them a 2 ½ game lead atop the AL East division over the Tampa Bay Rays.
