Jeter hits first pitch out to move past Murray
CHICAGO -- Yankees captain Derek Jeter didn't wait long to put Hall of Famer Eddie Murray in his rearview mirror, slugging a leadoff home run against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday to mark his 3,256th career hit.

The blast off left-handed starter Francisco Liriano gave Jeter sole possession of 11th place on baseball's all-time hits list. Next up is Willie Mays, with 3,283.

The home run was Jeter's 252nd, which places him in some familiar company. Joe Torre and Bobby Murcer are among the Major Leaguers who retired with 252 career blasts.
