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.
