NEW YORK -- With one swing, Alex Rodriguez matched Eddie Murray on baseball's all-time RBIs list and allowed Derek Jeter to become just the 17th player in baseball history with at least 1,800 runs scored.
Rodriguez's first-inning single to center field off the Mets' Dillon Gee on Saturday knocked home Jeter and accounted for Rodriguez's 1,917th career RBI, tying Murray for eighth place all-time.
Jeter's run scored was the 1,800th of his career, moving him two clear of Ted Williams. Jeter is in 17th place all-time, with Carl Yastrzemski next at 1,816. Rodriguez's hit gave the Yankees an early 1-0 lead in the Subway Series contest.
