Jeter moves up hits list with No. 3,152
NEW YORK -- With his single in the eighth inning of Wednesday's 8-3 Yankees win over the Royals, shortstop Derek Jeter tied Hall of Famer Paul Waner for 15th place on baseball's all-time hits list.

Jeter, who went 3-for-5 to run his career total to 3,152, is two hits behind George Brett for 14th place.

"It's hard to believe, if you think about it," Jeter said. "I really don't try to think about it too much. I just try to go out there and get some hits and do my job. I wasn't aware of it until they asked for the ball, but it's kind of cool."

The win was Jeter's 18th multihit game of the season. The captain said he feels as though he's in good shape physically, and his numbers are reflecting it this season.

The 37-year-old 12-time All-Star is hitting .348 with five home runs and 16 RBIs this year.
