Jeter passes Rickey, now chasing Biggio
Derek Jeter’s first-inning triple gave him career hit No. 3,056, moving past Rickey Henderson for sole possession of 21st place on baseball’s all-time list.
It’s been a busy week for Jeter, who also passed Rod Carew (3,053). Next up is Craig Biggio (3,060), but after that, Jeter will have to wait a little bit before knocking off any new names. His boyhood idol, Dave Winfield, has a healthy lead at 3,110.
Jeter came around to score later in the inning, giving him 1,752 runs scored for his career, good for sole possession of 20th place all-time. That breaks a tie with Jimmie Foxx.
