Derek Jeter needed two hits. He got five. The 3,000th hit of his career was only a step along the way as the Yankees shortstop went 5-for-5 this afternoon, capping his day with the game-winning RBI in the eighth inning for a 5-4 Yankees win against the Rays. After a first-inning single, Jeter reached 3,000 with a third-inning solo home run to left field. It was his first home run at Yankee Stadium since July 22, 2010. Jeter then doubled and scored in the fifth inning, singled and stole a base in the sixth, and singled in the winning run in the eighth. It the third five-hit game of his career.
