Jeter removed from game in 5th inning


BOSTON (AP) Derek Jeter is out of the game for a pinch hitter.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi sent Francisco Cervelli to the plate in the top of the fifth inning of Saturday's game against Boston, which led 9-0. The move was greeted with a chorus of boos from the crowd that had come to see the second-to-last game of Jeter's career.

Cervelli grounded into a double play.

Jeter was 1 for 2, with a strikeout in the first and an infield single in the third inning.
