Derek Jeter is DiMaggio-like in terms of consistency at the plate as the Yankees head into a series against the Angels.

Consider this: Going back to last season, Jeter has hit safely in 77 of his last 80 games with an at-bat. He is also on pace to set the record for most games with a hit in a single-season.

The mark is 135. It was first set by Rogers Hornsby in 1922 and matched by Chuck Klein (1930), Wade Boggs (1985), Jeter (1999) and Ichiro Suzuki (2001). Jeter is on a pace for 148.

Back later with the lineup.

However, I am not covering the Angels series this weekend. There’s an 11-day road trip starting on Monday, so I have a little time off prior to that. That will include blogging to some extent.
