Derek JeterA middle infielder recorded a nice, round number in Sunday's Indians-Yankees game, but it wasn't Derek Jeter. Instead, Cleveland second baseman Orlando Cabrera recorded his 2,000th career hit in the second inning of the Yankees' 9-1 victory. The ball bounced off Jeter's glove and into left field and it was ruled a single. Cabrera is the 262nd player to record 2,000 hits and is the 17th active player to reach the milestone.

As for Jeter, he had two hits, keeping alive his attempt to record his 3,000th hit at Yankee Stadium. With his two hits, he's at 2,993 in his career and needs seven more to get to 3,000 and has four more games on this homestead. The Yankees play the Indians Monday night and then host the Rangers for three games before going to Chicago to face the Cubs at Wrigley Field for three games.

SUNDAY: Jeter went 2 for 5, with RBI singles in both the fifth inning and the eighth inning.


ALL-TIME LIST: Jeter will stand at 28th until he ties Roberto Clemente at 3,000.

NEXT UP: Jeter has never faced Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco, Carrasco held the Twins to just three hits and no runs in 8 1/3 innings on Tuesday and is 5-3 with a 4.52 ERA this season. Right-handers are hitting .300/.337/.509 off Carrasco this season.

Jeter Watch: Two more hits

CBSPORTS. you need to hire techno-savvy people so they can differentiate between yesterday and today. While checking your major league baseball scores, I saw most of yesterday's reults. It's almost 7:00 pm here on the East coast and you haven't updated your site for MLB scores. Go to your nearest Jr. High School and hire a kid who will show you how to use the internet. And, I wonder why I rarely visit this site anymore. Now, get your eunuchs to give my response a very low score so that all of you can feel better about any criticism!
