Derek JeterDerek Jeter got his 2,995th and 2,996th hits off the same pitcher he recorded hit No. 2,994: Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco.

Leading off the game, Jeter hit a slow chopper to third that Orlando Cabrera couldn't field cleanly with his barehand, and the ball was (rightfully) ruled a base hit. In the second, he hit a double in the gap to score two and give New York a 3-0 lead.
Jeter Watch

On June 13 at Yankee Stadium, Jeter led off the game with a single and then left the game after flying out in the fifth inning. Jeter's three plate appearances in that game (going 1 for 3) are the only three in his career against the 24-year-old Indians right-hander.

In that last game, Carrasco loaded the bases in the first, only to get out of the inning and went on to hold the Yankees scoreless and allow just four more hits in seven innings for the Yankees' first 1-0 loss at new Yankee Stadium.

We'll be updating this post after each Jeter plate appearance tonight.

First plate appearance (1st inning): Infield single to third.

Second plate appearance (2nd inning): 2-run double to left-center.

Third plate appearance (3rd inning): Struck out looking.

Fourth plate appearance (5th inning): Flies out to center.

Fifth plate appearance (7th inning): Grounds out to shortstop.

Sixth plate appearance (9th inning): Grounds out to third.

Up next: The Yankees finish their series in Cleveland against right-hander Justin Masterson, before returning to Yankee Stadium for four games against the Rays to finish out the first half. Jeter is 5 for 12 against Masterson in his career.

Jeter Watch: Up to 2,996

It is probably a rare breed that gets 3000 hits at the peak of their career and not at the tail end, Pete Rose comes to mind, haven't really reviewed the list to see who the others might be.  Like most career achievements and milestones, this is not only about longevity but also consistency.

you know the hardest part of this is that over the history of the Yankees that Jeter would be the first player to get 3000 hits for them. This to me is the biggest feat in baseball because this requires a long time playing when sometimes they should walk away. Well Goood Like to jeter in getting this mile stone even through I am a yankee hater
