CHICAGO -- With his second five-hit game of the season at U.S. Cellular Field on Wednesday night in the Yankees' 18-7 drubbing of the White Sox, Derek Jeter continued his march up the all-time hits list.
The Yankees' captain reached on a bunt single in the first inning, then knocked a base hit to right field in the second, giving him 3,024 career hits to move him past Hall of Famer Lou Brock for sole possession of 23rd place on the all-time list.
He then singled in two runs during the Yankees' seven-run third inning outburst and singled yet again in the fifth. After lining out to first in the seventh, he doubled and scored in the eighth for the fourth five-hit game of his career.
Jeter has notched at least two hits in three of his last four games. Next on the list is Rod Carew, with 3,053.
