With the Yankee Stadium crowd chanting his name amid a scoreless tie, Derek Jeter rose to the occasion on Tuesday night in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Rangers, adding another milestone to his collection.

Although his hit didn't lead to a run in New York's 2-1 win, Jeter ripped a one-out double down the left-field line off lefty Neal Cotts, passing Lou Gehrig with No. 535 to take over the Yankees' all-time doubles lead.

On the all-time Major League leaderboard, Jeter stands in 36th place; Al Simmons and David Ortiz are next with 539.

Carlos Beltran grounded into an inning-ending double play two batters later, sending the game to extra innings. It was Jeter's first double since July 1, a home game against the Rays.
