TORONTO -- Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada made a bit of history at Rogers Centre on Thursday night.

When Posada checked in as a pinch-hitter for Andruw Jones in the eighth inning of the Yankees' eventual 16-7 loss to the Blue Jays, it marked the 1,660th game he and Jeter played together.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that's the most regular-season games two players have ever appeared in together in Yankees history. The previous mark was set by Lou Gehrig and Tony Lazzeri, who had 1,659 instances in which both played in the same game as Yankees.

The only other current big league teammates to even play 1,000 games together are Jeter and Alex Rodriguez (1,050).
