Derek Jeter got his 2,995th and 2,996th hits off the same pitcher he recorded hit No. 2,994: Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco.
Leading off the game, Jeter hit a slow chopper to third that Orlando Cabrera couldn't field cleanly with his barehand, and the ball was (rightfully) ruled a base hit. In the second, he hit a double in the gap to score two and give New York a 3-0 lead.
On June 13 at Yankee Stadium, Jeter led off the game with a single and then left the game after flying out in the fifth inning. Jeter's three plate appearances in that game (going 1 for 3) are the only three in his career against the 24-year-old Indians right-hander.
In that last game, Carrasco loaded the bases in the first, only to get out of the inning and went on to hold the Yankees scoreless and allow just four more hits in seven innings for the Yankees' first 1-0 loss at new Yankee Stadium.
