Jeter looking to lock up 14th All-Star appearance

NEW YORK -- In his first game since celebrating his 40th birthday on Thursday, Yankees captain Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a run scored in the Yankees' 6-0 win against the Red Sox on Friday.

"I'm not so sure that he feels 40," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. "That's a good thing."

Jeter, who announced prior to the start of the season that he will retire at the end of the year, currently leads the All-Star voting among American League shortstops (2,353,336) in the most recent polls released this past Sunday.

He is hitting .271 with a .327 on-base percentage and 27 runs scored. Jeter currently has the sixth-most votes in the AL, and if the results hold, he would become an All-Star for the 14th time in his career.
