Bombers bits

• Derek Jeter has played in 2,580 games at shortstop entering play on Tuesday and needs three appearances to tie Luis Aparicio (2,583) for second place on the all-time list, trailing only Omar Vizquel (2,709).

If Jeter passes Aparicio without playing another position, he will have made the most appearances as a shortstop without playing another position (Vizquel played multiple positions).

• On this date in 1948, Joe DiMaggio hit for the second of his two career cycles in a 13-2 win against the White Sox in Chicago, going 5-for-6 with two homers and six RBIs.
