Tied by Jeter on hits list, Winfield honored
NEW YORK -- Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter collected the 3,110th hit of his career on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium. The second-inning RBI single off Twins starter Anthony Swarzak tied Jeter with Hall of Fame outfielder Dave Winfield for 18th on the all-time list.

"I always enjoy watching Derek play because he is a model of consistency both in the field and at the plate," Winfield, the former Yankees star, said in a statement. "I finished my career with 3,110 hits, and I have only admiration and respect for Derek. I hope he pauses for just a moment to admire the view with me, and then keeps going. This is just one more achievement in an incredible career."

Winfield played 22 years with six teams, including a little more than nine with the Yankees. He amassed 1,300 of his hits in New York. Last July 9, Jeter became the first Yankees player to reach the 3,000-hit mark while playing his entire career with the club.

Next up for Jeter on the all-time hits list is Tony Gwynn, who finished with 3,141, and Robin Yount, who had 3,142.
