Jeter ties Mantle on Yanks' runs list

NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter tied Mickey Mantle for third place on the Yankees' all-time list of runs scored in Monday's game against the Rays, touching home plate for the 1,677th time.

Jeter scored a pair of runs in the game, coming in on Nick Swisher's bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning off Matt Garza and on Curtis Granderson's three-run homer off Grant Balfour in the sixth.

Only Babe Ruth (1,959) and Lou Gehrig (1,888) have scored more runs than Jeter in franchise history.
