Breaking down Derek Jeter's march to 3,000 hits by the numbers

Derek Jeter became the 28th man in baseball history to collect 3,000 regular-season hits on Saturday when he hit a one-out solo home run off the Rays' David Price into the left field bleachers at the new Yankee Stadium in the third inning of the Yankees' 5-4 win over the Rays.

Jeter became just the second man to homer for his 3,000th hit (the first was former teammate Wade Boggs, who coincidentally did so for the Rays in 1999) as well as just the second to collect five hits in the game in which he hit his 3,000th. Jeter entered the game needing two hits to get to 3,000 and went 5 for 5 with a game-tying home run for the milestone as well as the eventual game-winner. Jeter singled in his first at-bat against Price, then followed hit No. 3,000 with three more safeties: a leadoff double in the fifth and a two-out single in the sixth, both off Price, as well as a two-out RBI single off reliever Joel Peralta in the eighth that broke a 4-4 tie and proved to be the game-winning hit.
