First-inning single moves Jeter past Brett
Derek Jeter singled to lead off Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics, giving him 3,155 hits for his career and moving him past Hall of Famer George Brett on the all-time hits list.
Jeter and Brett had been tied at No. 14 before the base hit.
The Yankees' shortstop lifted a 3-2 pitch from Oakland left-hander Tommy Milone into left field, where Seth Smith short-hopped the ball, allowing Jeter to reach base and pass Brett. Jeter later advanced to third base but did not score in the inning.
Cal Ripken, Jr. is No. 13 on the all-time hits list with 3,184. After Ripken is Nap Lajoie, who recorded 3,242 hits in his Major League career, which spanned from 1896-1916.
