Jeter moves into 9th place on hit list

NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter moved into ninth place on the all-time hits list with an infield single during the third inning of Tuesday's New York Yankees game against the Chicago White Sox.

With the 3,314th hit of his career, Jeter surpassed Eddie Collins to take hold of the ninth spot. If Jeter stays healthy, he should soon pass Paul Molitor (3,319) for eighth on the list. Pete Rose owns the most hits in major league history with 4,256.

Jeter, 39, picked up the hit Tuesday off White Sox starter Chris Sale on a ground ball toward the middle. Second baseman Gordon Beckham made a diving stop on the ball, but Jeter was too quick to first.
