Jeter alone in ninth place with 1,920th run scored

NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter scored the 1,920th run of his career in the Yankees' 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday, breaking a tie with Alex Rodriguez for sole possession of ninth place on baseball's all-time list.

Jeter reached base with a third-inning infield single off starter Marcus Stroman and moved to second base on a wild pitch before sliding home safely on Brian McCann's single to left field, tying the game at 1.

With the crowd chanting his name in the bottom of the ninth, Jeter ripped a one-out double to plate Brett Gardner and cut the Yankees' deficit to three runs. The RBI was Jeter's 1,303rd, lifting him past Miguel Tejada and into 100th place alone on the career RBIs list.

"He's turned it around again," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Jeter. "You're seeing it again. The guy never stops fighting and believing in himself. Obviously, it's an attitude that's infectious. It's an attitude that you want in your players."

Rodriguez has missed all of this season due to a suspension and will have the opportunity to move past Jeter when he rejoins the Yankees next year. Stan Musial is in eighth place on the all-time list with 1,949 runs scored.

"Nothing he does surprises you anymore," Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said of Jeter. "Obviously, what he's accomplished in his career is pretty special, and he's definitely a guy you don't ever want to count out."
