Yankees SS Derek Jeter ties Willie Mays for 11th place on alltime hits list

Despite aggravating an ankle injury on Wednesday night, Derek Jeter was in the New York Yankees lineup on Thursday, at DH -- and it paid off when he singled to center in the seventh inning to drive in a run and tie Hall of Famer Willie Mays for 11th place on the alltime hits list at 3,283.

Mays needed 2,992 games and 22 seasons to reach that total; Jeter is in his 18th season, and Thursday's game was the 2,567th of his career.

Jeter probably won't break into the top 10 until next season; his next target is Eddie Collins at 3,315. But Jeter conceivably could move into sixth place by the end of 2013, passing Collins, Paul Molitor (3,319), Carl Yastrzemski (3,419), Honus Wagner (3,420) and Cap Anson (3,435).
